There is no doubt that God sends blessings to who He can send them through! God uses ordinary people like you and me-common, ordinary, flawed people-for His glory. It never ceases to amaze me to see the ordinary people Jesus used in the Bible. From cover to cover the Bible has ordinary men and women perceived as flawed, failures, weak and lowly. But they were able to meet the needs of others, were instruments of His peace, and shared His Good News.
Hebrews 13:16 says, “And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” Brothers and Sisters, God didn’t add another day to your life because you needed it. He did so because someone out there needs you!
Jesus intimately understood this concept. He said Matthew 20:28, “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Jesus came to serve and as such we were create to serve.
I encourage you to look for opportunities to bless someone today. The more we seek to bless others, God will provide for us and open more doors to accomplish His will. Steve Maraboli said, “A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.”
