How do we become a blessing to others? To many of us, we have work, money to buy food and clothing, and we live in a comfortable life, but the other side of the world is full of hunger, poverty, crime, and disaster. Everybody has a journey of life to take, but we need to also be considerate of other people and be of help to them. As Christians, we believe in the two greatest commandments, to love God above all else, and to love our neighbors as we love ourselves, so we need to be socially responsible. More than the food we eat, and the water we drink, we need to sustain our spirituality, become an influence to others in a good way like what Jesus did.
With great love and care for our neighbors, we can help them through our simple endeavors. If you are a student, you can help your classmates in school by reaching out and becoming a tutor if you are good at Math to those who need help. Be an example to your classmates by not being a bully and respecting the rights and preferences of your classmates. Be a blessing to your fellow teenagers by encouraging your siblings, friends and classmates to join religious youth camps and conferences, so they can also grow their faith and spirituality with Christ. It is good to also encourage your parents to donate to charity events or hold a fund raising campaign by having garage sale.
As adult Christians, you can become a blessing to other people by serving your religious congregation, participating in volunteer work, or simply donating to charity. There are countless ways to become a blessing to other people, to your employees or with your colleagues by reading the bible or gospel reading on your break or lunch time, sharing your religious views or insights, sending inspirational quotes on their emails, and asking them how is their day so far. Even a simple smile or “hi” and “hello” can make a difference in someone else’s life. Patronize your own local goods to help business owners and employees in your area rather than buying imported goods. With social media, it is easier to share the good news by sharing gospel readings, posting inspirational verses or gospel quotes, and other inspiring stories.
