Although the Bible has hundreds of passages concerning the blessings we are given as believers in Jesus Christ, some unscrupulous people have taken these Bible verses about blessings and used them for their own gain. I do not want to do this, nor do I want to be included in with those types of people so I have put together a balanced list of Bible verses about blessings that hopefully will truly be a blessing to you and show you that it is not all about being healthy, wealthy, and free of any problems, but instead I hope you will see that we are truly blessed with things that health, wealth, and the easy life cannot buy.
