Douglas Talks – Blessed to be a Blessing

Do you ever feel bad about how much God has blessed you? You don’t need to feel that way! Instead, look for ways that you can use the blessings God has given you to bless others and share the love of Christ with them. You’ve been blessed to be a blessing!

If you look at the world around you, it’s not difficult to find someone who has a worse life than you. The truth is that we are all blessed by God in very many ways, but sometimes it might feel like life isn’t fair. Either we feel like life’s not fair because other people have more than we do, or it’s not fair that we have more than others. We end up feeling jealous of what others have or guilty for what we have, neither of which is a good feeling to dwell on. Whether you have a lot or a little, you have been blessed by God, and God wants you to use your blessings to bless others. Self-hatred and jealousy help no one. God wants us to be thankful and generous, for our own benefit and for the benefit of others. Let’s thank God for all of our blessings, and seek to use those blessings to bless others!
