2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
Most of us like to be helped. When facing a difficult challenge, even a word of encouragement can go a long way.
If you are like most people, then you have relied upon help at one time or another. Scripture teaches us that part of showing gratefulness is taking the blessing you received and passing it on to someone else. It can be anything – a kind word, food, a ride, or a helping hand carrying things. If it is done in obedience to God’s Word, it’s powerful and life changing.
What we need to start realizing is that even though all these good things came through the people around us, God originated them. All the blessings that we receive come from the Lord’s hand. It’s in thankfulness to Him that we are willing to pass a blessing on to someone else.
Look for an opportunity, today, to be a blessing to someone. Do something unexpected. Take the good things you have received from God and pass them on to someone around you. The Lord will see to it that some day, in some way, you will be rewarded for your act of gratefulness to Him.
