Blessings and Blessings

Students of ancient Aramaic say that the words called by a woman in the crowd, were a standard blessing often used, and not specific to Jesus’ mother. This puts Jesus’ answer in another context: More blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it. If we hold Jesus’ answer in prayer, we understand that ‘keeping’ the word of God is acting on it. How do I act on the word of God? Do people see the word in me as the source of happiness and blessing?
