Mid-Week Stewardship Thought

Blessed to Be a Blessing

God’s Word clearly directs us to use the blessings we receive from Him to bless others. We are blessed to be a blessing. In Christ’s name, we are to clothe the naked, feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and help the sick (Matthew 25:35-36). God blesses us not only to take care of our needs; He blesses us so that we can use what we receive to bless others. Paul wrote “You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God” (2 Corinthians 9:11).

The wonderful thing is that, as God blesses us to bless others, we are blessed again. When we give faithfully and generously, we will hear God’s words, “Well done, good and faithful servant … Enter into the joy of your master” (Matthew 25:21). As people who are a blessing to others, we will enjoy intimate fellowship with our Father and His Son, Jesus. Is there any greater joy than this?

Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your generosity toward me. Help me to be generous toward others. Amen.

Blessings on your journey as a steward!
