Month Theme: For This Purpose
Topic: Blessed for a Purpose
Scripture Reading: Genesis 12:1-5
And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
God blesses you for a purpose. You are blessed to be a blessing to others. God touches your life to touch other lives. Others must benefit from the grace of God on your life. God blessed Abraham to be a blessing to all the families of the earth (Genesis 12:1-3). God’s blessings on him transcended many generations.
When God blesses us, He has our “neighbour” in mind. For instance, not everybody will prosper. We will always have the poor with us (Matthew 26:11). We should therefore remember the poor when God blesses us financially. Living a life of carelessness that will cause us not to be blessed is an act of wickedness, because many destinies are connected to our blessing.
One is not truly blessed until one’s blessings impact other people’s lives. Blessings that last are those that make positive impact on others. Blessings which feed the selfishness of those who have them leave the rest of the world to suffer.
Prayer: Pray that God will bless you to be a blessing to many.
