A lot of people are feeling overwhelmed. It’s understandable. After all, there’s a pandemic going on.
It’s easy to feel out of control, uncertain, or even paralyzed.
But although you don’t have much say about what happens to you, you do have a say in what happens through you.
God’s people can be proactive about seeking and seizing opportunities to bless others.
For a full blog I did called “6 ways to be loving in a pandemic” click on the link below. But for today, let me stress this one thing:
Blessed people bless people. Since God has been so good to us, we share that goodness with others. This is captured perfectly in 1 John 4:11: “Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”
This could take shape in a variety of ways. It could include picking up groceries for an elderly or sick neighbour, or buying gift cards to support a struggling small business, or taking the time to talk to someone who is overly anxious, or bringing food to a street centre with shelves that are most certainly depleted.
We can’t control everything, but we can control some things.
Blessed people bless people.
