To be blessed simply means to be happy. How do we live a blessed or happy life? It’s not actually where most people think. Our magazines and culture tend to paint a picture of happiness being when you have the right looks, person on your arm, money in the bank, fancy house, holidays and car. But the Kingdom of God is the total opposite of today’s culture. Remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20 v 35 You’re really blessed when you’re freely giving of your time, talents and treasure for the benefits of others. God is a giver and we’re most like God when we’re giving. In fact God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit are complete in existence without need for anyone and anything else. Yet God created us to experience his love and when we blew it God supremely demonstrated his love in giving Jesus as our substitute on the cross. The blessed life isn’t about giving to get – that’s consumerism and selfishness. It’s about giving to give. When we do give then God entrusts us with even more so that we can continue giving to bless others, and in doing so we’re blessed.
