Open Palms

I really like these words from Mother Teresa – they remind me that the reason God blesses us is so that we can extend His love and providence to others who may be hurting. So often – especially here in the West – the message that we so frequently hear is “me first and me only.” Oh, how this mindset must grieve the heart of God!

Instead, the Lord asks us to hold our blessings loosely, always ready to share what we’ve received with someone who may be in need. Also, it’s important for us to understand that blessings may take many forms – not all of them material – and bear in mind that sometimes, the most precious gift that we can give to another person is our time and thoughtful attention.

So be blessed, my friends, remembering to extend the love of God to those around you, too. 💛
