Challenge

“He heareth the prayer of the righteous”  Proverbs 15:29

Our associate pastor yesterday challenged us as a congregation to go out this week and bless 3 other people in some way, form or fashion.  I have blessed personally 2 people already in a minor way.  I am looking for the third opportunity still.  I want to challenge you today to do the same.  Go forward this week and bless 3 people.  In by doing so, your father who is in Heaven will bless you back as He always does.

Thank you Father God Almighty for all your blessings everyday. Amen.

Food for thought

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others–Phillippians 2:3-4

In yesterday’s sermon, our Pastor Ray gave a great message for all to hear.  Amongst many points he outlined in his sermon, he challenged the congregation to bless someone everyday this week ahead.  As I thought about his challenge, I was reflecting personally on things that I do that do bless others.  I believe that for me, it is an intentional purpose I have as a believer to bless others often and daily, not just this week.  I am not going to get into the different things that I do daily or have done or plan on doing, but suffice it to say, I DO INTENTIONALLY.

So, my question to you is this: What are you doing to bless others?  Will you try this challenge for this week?  Will you not just think of your own needs but the needs of others?

“Father, give us the strength to be a blessing to others as you are always a blessing to us your children.  In your name, Amen.”
