“Don’t just count your blessings. be the blessing other people count on.” – Anonymous.

Blessed to be a blessing is a Biblical principle that teaches us something about God’s expectations for each of us. God blesses us because He loves us, and so we can be a blessing to others. The blessings God gives us are intended to be shared.

Paul teaches the church in Corinth, “All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us….” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4 MSG). Proverbs 11:25 teaches that “the generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.” Jump into the New Testament, and you will find more verses like this such as Matthew 5:7; “God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy.”

We live in a world of negativity, heartbreak, and turmoil, and people desperately seek blessings. As Christians, we are called to be that blessing. However, we cannot indeed bless others if we do not understand how blessed we are by accepting the blessings God has given us.

It can be easy to become blinded to God’s blessings because of the frantic pace of life. That is why the Word of God is so important. The more time we spend reading and reflecting on God’s Word, the more we see God’s love and how He is constantly working for our good. When we fully understand how blessed we are, the more likely we are to share those blessings with others.

Taking it a step further, it is a privilege to serve and bless people. Have you ever wondered if people feel blessed when they step into your life? What constitutes a life of blessing?

Being a blessing means living out our faith in a way that positively impacts the people around us. It means showing love and compassion, being honest and sincere, and doing what we can to make someone’s day. Ultimately, this makes us truly happy when we can make someone else’s life just a little bit better.

So whether it’s taking the time to listen attentively, lending an encouraging word, or simply doing something kind for no reason, letting others know that we care about them is one of the most valuable things we can do.

A hoarded blessing won’t ever be enjoyed as richly as a shared one. Using your gift to meet someone else’s needs glorifies God by demonstrating His grace at work in your life. Don’t let His generous provisions end with you. Pass them on and discover the joy of a never-ending cycle of blessings.

Discussion Questions:

  1. Write down how you have been blessed, and thank God for those blessings.
  2. When blessed, you have the resources to be a blessing. What would it (or does it) look like to implement this reality into your life?
