Blessings of all kinds come from God. Children are blessings. A promotion at work and a special card from a friend are blessings too. But what do we do with blessings when we get them?
What we do with our blessings is determined by our inner motivations. We could hear praise from someone and turn into an arrogant bragger, or we could receive the praise graciously. We could turn a blessing into an opportunity to be a greedy manipulator, or we could be a person of integrity.
Blessings can be opportunities. Join me at Seek God With Me where I am sharing thoughts on how to handle blessings.
Don’t forget to check back with me this weekend for the review of a movie about a man who was abundantly blessed by God, but whose blessings weren’t really used the right way.
