When we say our hear someone say, "God Bless You," what do we think we're doing? What will happen? Or who is this God? And what is blessing?
I guess that getting a "Blessing" is receiving some goodies from God. This could mean that God who has been busy either not giving blessings or has not been giving blessings to me and others until it has been asked for is is now persuaded to impart blessings-- Wealth, love, opportunity, health, better conditions, relief from pain, free tickets.
