Day 25 :: Blessing others should become a habit
Writing this month has been good for me in several ways, but mostly, it's been good because I'm learning. And, oh, how far I have to go to truly live a life of blessing.
Earlier this week I asked for your input on what a blesser is/does, and I received some great feedback that I wanted to share. Thank you for your input--it has really helped me! Here is what was said:
A blesser is one who, by the Holy Spirit's enablement, brings another to a point of seeing God more clearly for who He truly is, thus glorifying God.
A blesser is someone who is sensitive, tuned in to people around them, and obedient to the Holy Spirit's direction as to how to reach out to those people.
A blesser "shows up" as God's ambassador when there is a need in someone's life to be encouraged, prayed for/with, assisted, or just to let someone know that they are cared for in such a way that through their love, God is glorified and praised!
Blessers use their words to speak life and blessing into those around them. Blessers see others for their calling and destiny in Jesus instead of their immediate behavior.
And, in one email, I received the following that I thought was excellent:
Oh, how I struggle with these things! May God continue to teach us how to live as blessers!
This is Day 25 of a series: Made to Pour, Living a life of Blessing
