Genesis 12:2 shares an insight into what God was doing in Abram’s life. He told Abram “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will your name great, and you will be a blessing.”
There’s something interesting in this verse. God told Abram that He was going to bless Abram and Abram would then become a blessing to others.
I’m sure Abram was still a blessing to others before he received the blessing from God yet change was brought about when Abram was blessed. He was then able to be a blessing.
You Are Blessed
If you live in the United States of America, you are blessed. Even if you’re in the poor house, you have blessings people in other countries would kill for.
We have so many blessings we take for granted. I know I take for granted the clean drinking water I have. Or the job I have. Or the people I have in my life.
I am blessed.
You have a lot of the same blessings I have. Things and people in your lives that others don’t.
The truth is, YOU ARE BLESSED.
You have rights and freedoms. You have financial means. And much more.
You just fail to see the blessings on a regular basis.
To Be A Blessing
Now that I’ve called attention to the fact you have blessings in your life, you need to take action. You’ve been blessed not so you can take advantage of all of the benefits of your blessings.
I believe you’ve been blessed so you can bless others.
As a business leader, you have the opportunity to be a blessing. Through the way you treat team members to the pay you provide to the people you employ to the charities you donate to, you are able to be a blessing to others.
Be a blessing. Choose to serve others through the blessings you’ve received. That’s why you’re blessed in the first place.
