Reflection by Ruth Boulter

“Out in the highways and byways of life many are weary and sad;

Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife, making the sorrowful glad.

 

Tell the sweet story of Christ and his love. Tell of his pow’r to forgive;

Others will trust him if only you prove true every moment you live.

 

Give as ‘twas given to you in your need. Love as the Master loved you;

Be to the helpless a helper indeed; unto your mission be true.

 

Chorus: Make me a blessing, make me a blessing! Out of my life may Jesus shine

             Make me a blessing, O Savior, I pray. Make me a blessing today.”

                                                                                                                                Ira B. Wilson, 1880-1950

 

Sometimes we think we have nothing to offer someone else. But that is just not true. The power of a smile to a stranger who is hurting, the warm hug of a friend or a listening ear can bless someone in ways we may never know. God loved us and meant for us to share his love.

 

“Like apples of gold in settings of silver, is a word spoken at the proper time” Proverbs 25:11 NASV

“Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.” Proverbs 11:25 ESV

Be blessed today, and go, be a blessing.
