November 21 2016 – bless and you will be blessed.

David says in psalm 109 verse 17:

As he did not delight in blessing, so let it be far from him.

David prayed this of the wicked and deceitful who spoke against him with lies (verse 2). But it is a reality that if we don’t bless others, blessing will be far from us.

We are told the flip side of this coin repeatedly in scripture, that if we do bless others we will be blessed. Proverbs 11:25 says:

25 The generous soul will be made rich,
And he who waters will also be watered himself.

In other words, bless and you will be blessed.

Jesus said in Luke 6:38

38 Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

In other words, bless and you will be blessed.

Paul said 2 Corinthians 9:6

But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.

In other words, bless and you will be blessed.

The message is clear throughout scripture, give and it will be given to you, bless and you will be blessed.
