We are blessed to be a blessing. Some people think of financial or material blessings when they read this, but blessings are more than these things. We can be a blessing to others by speaking words of encouragement, providing hugs, and giving friendly smiles. These actions cost us nothing to give yet they are worth so much.
We are moved to offer encouraging words, hugs, and smiles to someone who is obviously hurting, but we should be in the habit of doing the same for those who do not display hurt. When all is well, it is still nice to receive encouragement of some sort as we journey through life. These acts of love encourage us to go and keep going.
Have you blessed someone with a loving gesture today? Has someone blessed you as well? Let us love at all times.
"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God." 1 John 4:7 NKJV
