The Blessing I Could Be
by Randy Chambers, 2016-05-09
Psalm 67:1, NIV: : May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us, Selah.
I think of the blessing I could be to others, and how they are not even aware of it. But it is not me, but Jesus who resides within me. I have seen Him bless others through me, and I know He is able to do even more. But sometimes the offer is extended and politely ignored. I think of the blessing I could be to others, and how I am often too busy to consider it. I have seen Jesus work through me to bring His goodness into the lives of others, but there are times too much of me gets in the way–preventing His blessing from being shared. I think of the blessing that Christ could be to others, and how often we fail to grasp the truth of it. Pride prevents me from letting others bless me, and selfishness prevents me from letting Him bless others through me. I would hope and pray that one day we will not look back on our lives regretfully, when we consider the potential we had to be a blessing, and we let those moments pass.
