“Blessed to be a blessing”

You hear that around churches from time to time. But what does that mean? Well, it means that God has blessed us so that we might be a blessing to others. It’s part of what Jesus had in mind when He told us that the two most important things were to love God and to love others.

The miraculous part of the whole equation is that, when we are a blessing to others, we receive a blessing ourselves. Sometimes it’s something big. Sometimes it’s something small. Whatever the case, there is nothing more gratifying and edifying than helping to change someone’s life for the better. It has the same effect on you.
