Today is an exciting day for my 15 year old son. Someone thought enough to bless him with a ticket to a PRESTIGIOUS golf tournament. This golf tournament is known around the world. This is a moment that he will savor forever. When he is older with children and grandchildren, he will surely remember this momentous day.
The bible instructs us that we should be a blessing to others daily. In Genesis 12:2, God states, “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.” God told Abram this in the beginning to bless others and he would take care of his needs.
In blessing others, God will provide for us abundantly. The more you bless people the more God will dispense back into your life. In Luke 6:38 it states, “Give, and it will be given unto you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured in your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” This not only means financially, however the blessing could be sane mental health, great physical health, peaceful home, joyful home, peaceful relationships, and a peaceful job.
As my Pastor often says, you cannot out give God. Reflect over the scripture Malachi 3:10 “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it (NIV).” God is telling us to test him when it comes to blessings.
As you begin your week, find someone to bless. However, remember when you bless them you do not have to boast or brag about it. Imitate Jesus as he blessed with humility (Philippians 2).
I desire to be a blessing to others. I desire to give until it hurts. You have been so good to me and I cannot do anything but share. When I give, I remember how you gave us your only son in order for us to have eternal life. Thank you God!
In the marvelous and majestic name of Jesus,
