Purpose of Blessings

I am so undeservedly blessed!  I have been considering these blessings of my life.  Why me when so many others, due to no fault of their own, don't seem to experience similar blessings?

What is my responsibility with those things in which I have been blessed?  Are they all about me and for my own personal enjoyment?   To lavish and obtain more and more for myself?

When I consider scripture, I begin to see glimpses of blessing and their purposes...

Genesis 12:2 "I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others."

Abraham was blessed... so that he could be a blessing to others.

I believe that I will be held accountable for the blessings that I have received and what I chose to do with them.  

What about my blessings?  Am I using them for my own enjoyment?... or looking to share?  Am I  focused on getting more?  Or focused on giving of what I have?

I don't know about you, but it has me thinking...

    Oh, I've been thinking and praying a lot about this lately Donnetta. Have you seen the book club discussion on (in)courage of Jen Hatmaker's book "7"? It's a good one!

    I've not seen the book discussion taking place, but I have read the book.  Challenging and thought provoking to say the least!

    (Always so lovely to have you stop by for a chat!) :-)


Thank you for taking a moment to stop and chat. I enjoy the presence of you!
