We need to get back to using blessings when we greet people and leave. How powerful it is to be a blessing to others and speak a good word into their day. Our words matter and blessings we bring forward to others, by our words, are a huge thing in God’s world.
Paul did this and frequently blessed others with …
Grace – χάρις – meaning a gift or blessing brought to man by Jesus Christ, favor, gratitude, thanks, kindness.
And then …
Peace – εἰρήνη – meaning peace of mind; invocation of peace a common Jewish farewell, in the Hebraistic sense of the health (welfare) of an individual.
How powerful for us and those we know. May I great others with that blessing.
So I greet you with the great words, grace and peace!” ~Apostle Paul
(Galatians 1:3 The Message)
