Everything God does has a reason behind it.
And that includes His choice to send a blessing into your life.
The reason is that you’ll multiply that blessing into the lives of others.
We’re vessels, my friend.
Mark 4 describes us a soil.
The challenge is to be the soil that produces a harvest from the seeds of God’s blessings.
Here’s how Jesus put it in Mark 4:20.
“And the seed that fell on good soil represents those who hear and accept God’s word and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as had been planted!”
This passage is typically understood within an evangelistic context with conversions. But it is also relevent to how we respond to blessings sent our way.
And that’s what I want to encourage you to ponder and pursue today.
When God sends the seed of a much-needed encouraging word from a relative or co-worker, please make it a point to speak some word of encouragement — no matter how brief — into the lives of every person you meet.
Whether a store clerk or an online tech support person or another parent waiting to pick up a child at school or wherever, ask God to lead you in finding something encouraging to say to him or her.
Will you encounter 30, 60 or 100 people today? Probably not.
But you just might do that during the course of a week.
Will God be honored by your intentional encouragement of so many?
Will those encouraged be blessed?
Will you and I be a better stewards of God’s blessing if we do this?
God is SO good to us.
Let’s say more good things to others in order to bring God a harvest for the blessing He sent our way.
As always, I love you
