Review: Double Blessing by:Mark Batterson

Double Blessing
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
New York Times bestselling author and pastor Mark Batterson invites readers to pursue, recognise, and maximize blessings from God.

Mark Batterson provides the tools necessary to inventory one's blessings and participate in double blessing - that moment when a blessing in your life is flipped to doubly bless another.

Batterson believes it's possible to experience more of God's blessing - but that might look different than you would initially expect.The first wave of blessing is that which God gives you: time, treasure, talent.The double blessing, the second movement in this relationship, is our giving back to God by giving to others.

In a day where divine flourishing and godly stewardship has been reduced to a hashtag; #blessed, Batterson challenges readers to pursue true, God-glorifying blessing and experience an exponential impact by participating in the double blessing.

My Review:
 In our daily lives, it can be very difficult, if not impossible to see the blessings that surround us. You hear of people blessing others all the time. For example, at the drive thru you will have someone in front of you in line pay for your food. It rarely happens, so that is a blessing and in turn you are suppose to do it for another person. 

 In the book, Double Blessing, the author tries to reason with us this very concept.  Mark reminds us that it isn't always about or even only about receiving blessings but to be one in return is where the real fulfillment is. To me, I tell my kids blessing others is much like what God wants us to do with the love He has shown us--and that is to give it away. Salvation and the act of telling others about Jesus is all about sharing that love with others. Blessings--are just another durative of that concept.

 Double Blessing, is a book that helps with this. The author shows us how to take action and it all begins with us.

A great read!
