We are blessed to be a blessing
“The Lord had said to Abram, ‘Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.'” – Genesis 12:1-3

The message at our church was so rich this morning that I had to share a piece of it with you. We should not be looking to others and thinking they are too blessed or coveting the blessings we don’t have, but instead looking at our blessings and thinking how much we have compared to others.
Two questions we will be reflecting on in our household this week and hope you will too:
How has God blessed you?
How does he want to use that blessing to bless others?
