Make Me A Blessing

We’ve been talking a lot about blessing. In Genesis 12:1-3 we learn that we are blessed to be a blessing through Abram (Abraham). What happens when we bless? Usually we feel blessed as well and find our sense of connection to those around us. But the primary outcome of blessing as followers of Jesus is this: God is revealed. God is honored. God is glorified. The kingdom of God is present here and now. 

 Make Me a Blessing 

  "Lord, Make me a blessing. 

   Those that I meet 

   Make me a blessing.  

  As I walk down the street 

  Make me a blessing 

    This day, even this hour 

  Make me a blessing 

  It lies in your power 

    Make me a blessing 

    At work and at home 

  Make me a blessing 

    Wherever I roam 

    Make me a blessing 

    That people may see 

  I am a blessing 

  For you are with me." 

  (from The Open Gate: Celtic Prayers for Growing Spirituality by David Adam)

 We are blessed to be a blessing! Praise be to God!
