25 The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped.
26 Curses on those who drive a hard bargain! Blessings on all who play fair and square!
27 The one who seeks good finds delight; the student of evil becomes evil.
Recently, I heard a keynote speaker reminding us to be a blessing to others. I want to relay the keynote speaker's message, which is highlighted in Proverbs 11:25-27. Our challenge for the month of September is to "be a blessing to others." You could be a blessing by showing acts of kindness, compassion, grace, support, and love. You could be a blessing to others by being positive or providing a prayer. The simplest thing such as doing the dishes or saying hi could be a blessing to others. If you don't know how to be a blessing to others, ask them what they need or look deep inside yourself and see what you need to feel love, safe, and comforted. Do to others what your soul needs that are respectful and kind.
Do one act of kindness per day this for a whole month and you'll realize the words of the Lord-- "The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped." In the counseling or psychology field, research are showing that our acts of kindness do make us feel good and be better people. If you've done daily acts of kindness for a whole month but still feel awful, please come see me. If you have been a blessing to others for a whole month but doesn't feel blessed, come see me or see our pastors from Freedom Community Church.
May all of you be blessed today, this month, and forever! - Song, Niam Ntxhiaj Looj
