Blessed… for What?

- - Uncategorized

We are blessed. We really do have so much.

Don’t feel like you are blessed?

Consider what happens in just 1 minute around the world:

250 babies are born,

113 are born into poverty.

The average person in the world makes $0.013, while the average American household makes $0.096.

The average person in India with an IT career makes $0.025, while the average person in the United States with an IT career makes $0.13.

Someone working in a Nike factory in Vietnam makes $0.0014.

120,673 pounds of edible food is thrown away in the United States; there are 107 deaths in the world – 18 will die from starvation.

Yes, we are blessed and we have more than enough.

“He will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.” – 2 Corinthians 2.10

“Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous.” – 2 Corinthians 2.11

We are blessed so that we can be generous.

We are blessed in order to be a blessing.

Let’s break free from greedy, selfish, fearful, tight-fisted management of the resources God has blessed us with.

Let’s go on new adventures in generosity!

I am a husband, father, pastor, leader & reader. I love God, love people & love life.
