When we bless people of God, God also blesses us. However, we should be like the Shunammite woman and not EXPECT a blessing for our good deeds, but bless others through kindness and hospitality with or without a blessing in return.
We “choose” to play tug-of-war between sin and Jesus.
Often it is hard to distinguish why we are so overwhelmed in all these areas of our lives, when honestly, we’re just tired.
We have become so accustom to Google giving us 2,720,000,000 results in 0.36 seconds that we expect the same from God.
We should not love God with a measuring-stick mindset. “Okay God, I love you this much because you did this much for me.”
