Give more to others than they expect. Everyday add value to someone you cross paths with. Plant seeds of encouragement to others and you'll reap a big harvest. We are so blessed to be a blessing to others.
When I spend my time building a connection with God, then His Spirit can show me the ways that I can bless the others. He can do the same for you!
It doesn’t have to be that you have a lot of wise words to give people, but we can be an encouragement with our actions and with what we do. That’s often what people need most. Maybe you see someone going through a hard season or just see someone a bit discouraged. We can give a hug or a smile, or say just a few encouraging words, and that might be all they need that day to keep on going. I know what it is like to go through hard times, but getting an encouraging word has the power to bless in a big way.
If I have a life with God, then He can lead me. He can show me the best way to be of help to others. Sometimes a person will come to my mind, and I sense that I need to pray for that person right then. God puts people on my heart for a reason, and I can ‘stand in the gap’ for them. (Ezekiel 22:30) I can be a blessing in that way too, even though they may never know that I am praying for them. If I see a need, then I need to be faithful to be a ‘servant of all.’”
Lord, help me to be a blessing to others. Use me to encourage those around me. Amen.
