Is it more important to you to do things to RECEIVE a blessing?
Or is it more important to you to do things to GIVE a blessing?
A friend pointed out that you can do both. True. But, that’s not the question.
The real question is: which one is MORE important to you? Heads it’s receive a blessing. Tails it’s give a blessing.
Do you usher because it feels good? Do you sing in the choir because it’s a blessing? Do you volunteer at the food bank because it brings you joy and happiness? Do you teach Sunday School because your students compliment you on your lessons? Do you do something nice for someone, then get miffed if they don’t thank you? Do you take meals to shut-ins then tell your friends to let them know how you are “serving the Lord”?
I’m struggling with both those questions. I want to discover the answers, but today, I don’t know how to answer either of them, or decide which one is more important to me. I think I’ll be praying about and pondering both questions for awhile.
