Love Your Neighbors as Yourself!
“Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Matthew 22:36-40
Be a blessing! That’s what we should strive to do. I pray for opportunities to be a blessing, and He is faithful to answer my prayers! God commands us to love our neighbors as ourselves, and what better way is there to show your love, God’s Love by your actions?
Some of my most wonderful relationships have come from performing a simple act to bless them. Whether clicking to simply share a fellow Christian entrepreneur’s new promotion company to sending a gift copy of one of my books to a reader friend . . . or friend of a friend.
If you’ve known me very long, you’ve probably heard me talking about God’s economy. It boils down to everyone getting blessed. Often I say it like this: No deal is a good deal unless everyone walks away blessed. I LOVE how He does that!
“And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.” Deuteronomy 28:2
He uses so many little things to bless us . . . and He sometimes blesses us with HUGE things—-like new cars or houses or friends! (Movie deals, Lord?) But whether large or small, His blessings along with the many opportunities to BE a blessing keep me in a state of thankfulness.
I am so grateful for every one!
