Devotional: Bring Blessings
October 26, 2020
Time: 8:56 am
I love this passage in Proverbs 11:25. It’s awesome to know it’s important to take blessings with us regardless of the situations we encounter. We are overwhelmed when blessings comes our way because when good things happened we typically share our joy with others. Blessings are like a contagion because it infects others.
Proverb 11: 25: Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.
Blessings elevate our joy when others see it and respond with words of encouragement. It’s the need of the human hearts to constantly be encouraged.
One who waters will himself be watered. Interesting choice of words. The bottom line water is needed to sustain life. No human being can live without water nor plants and trees.
We have a tremendous responsibility to water people’s hearts with the fruit of the Spirit.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,”
Galatians 5:22 ESV
Always remember when we bless and water others, we are benefactors of our actions too because we represent God Almighty.
Prayer: Lord! Help us to bring blessings and water others with Good water (fruit of the Spirit). In Jesus’ name, Amen. Bjs
I hope and pray each of you will experience blessings today and beyond.

Something to Consider
God has revealed his perfect plan for Christians. He gives hope through the Revelation of John. It’s clearly written in the scripture that God’s love for us is remarkable and unwavering. He will live with us on earth. He will transform everything for his glory. We are privileged to be a part of an amazing new life with God and our family. We must embrace His promises as we observe moral values decaying in this world. We must share the hope we believe about God’s incredible promises:
(1) He will wipe away every tear from our eyes.
(2) There will be no more death.
(3) Neither shall there be mourning,
(4) There will be no crying.
(5) There will be no pain.
(6) God will live with us.
(7) There will be a new earth and new heaven.
We will have an amazing new life and home. We must eagerly share the future hope we have in Jesus to everyone before it’s too late.
