BLESSED to be a blessing ~ Part 1

Blessings come to those who....

...do what God says.  It is awesome to obey our Father just because we love Him.  It makes us great children, obedient servants, righteous believers...etc.

However, God did set up His own rules.  (He can do that, you know.)  In the Bible, we often find the "If / Then Principle."  If we do this ______ then God will do this _____.  Sometimes the principle is based on blessing and other times it is based on suffering loss. 


Prov. 22:9 He who is generous will be blessed, for he gives some of his food to the poor.

Jer. 22:16 "Did not your father eat and drink, and do justice and righteousness? Then it was well with him. He pled the cause of the afflicted and needy; then it was well. Is that not what it means to know Me?" declares the LORD.

Deut. 15:10. You shall give generously to [your poor brother], and your heart shall not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in all your undertakings.
We are teaching our kids to give, give of themselves, give their money, give their time, give their talents ~ just give.

God is so good!  Who wouldn't want to do what He says and give?

Stay tuned for part 2!
