Be A Blessing To Others

If you bless others, others will bless you. What you sow, you reap...God said to Abraham, ‘…because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:

God said to Abraham, ‘…because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven…’ (Genesis 22:16-17). Isaac was the lifelong dream of a ninety years old woman named Sarah and a hundred years old man named Abraham. 

But the more God blesses you, the harder it is to keep that blessing from becoming an idol in your life. Money may be the best example. The more money you make, the harder it is to trust Almighty God, and the easier it is to trust the almighty dollar. Isn’t it ironic that ‘In God, we trust is printed on US dollars – when money is the thing we often find most difficult to trust God with? If you are financially blessed, it is a gift from God (Deuteronomy 8:18). 

But God doesn’t financially bless us so that we can use it selfishly. He blesses us more so that we can be more of a blessing to others (Genesis 12:2). The truth is, what you are willing to walk away from determines what God is willing to entrust to you. He wants you to come to the place where you find your identity in Whose you are rather than in who you are. 

You can base your identity on a thousand things – the degrees you have earned, the positions you hold, the salary you make, etc. But if you base your identity on anything temporal, your identity is in a house of cards. There’s only one solid foundation: Jesus Christ. So, what’s getting between you and God? What feeds your ego? Where do you find your security outside of Christ? That’s what you need to put on the altar today.
