Called To Be A Blessing

God has called us to be a blessing.

 2 Corinthians 9:10 AMP says: And (God) Who provides seed for the sower and bread for eating will also provide and multiply your (resources for) sowing and increase the fruits of your righteousness (which manifests itself in active goodness, kindness and charity).

How Cool is that?!! Not only does God provide for your needs, but makes provision for you to go out and be a blessing!!

In the King James it says: He that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food and multiply your seed sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness.

The word "minister" refers to "someone who is appointed to administer or manage something for the good of someone else." A minister uses what's entrusted to him to improve the life and situation of another.

God has given you SOMETHING to use to be a blessing to someone else.

It may be money, it may be something in your closet or your attic or basement. It could be a piece of furniture, or it could be a cup of coffee & a listening ear, a smile, etc.

You have SOMETHING TO GIVE - use it and have fun doing it. It doesn't have to be just at this time of year either. Be a continual blessing and watch and see what God does both in your life and in the lives of others.
