Who is cursed and who is blessed?

A Christian’s life is distinguished from a non-Christian’s life in that the first have Christ at the centre of their life. A Christ-centred life is the objective of a Christian’s life in order to be blessed by God, to be in Communion with the Creator. This relationship evidently shows who is blessed and who cursed. In Jeremiah’s Book (17:5-8) we read what God has claimed about who is cursed and who is blessed:

“Cursed is the man who trusts in man
And makes flesh his strength,
Whose heart departs from the Lord.
For he shall be like a shrub in the desert,
And shall not see when good comes,
But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness,
In a salt land which is not inhabited.
 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.
 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
