PROGRAMMING YOUR LIFE IN BLESSING OTHERS!

Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one (Colossians 4:6).

As a Christian, God has made you to be a blessing to the lives of others. You are expected to program your life in blessing others. A Christian should never live a life of bitterness, sadness and hatred because God has destined him to be a channel of blessing to mankind in life. The Bible says in the opening text that let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to program his life in blessing others. A Christian is indeed created by God to become a blessing to humanity in life forever.

A Christian should take note of the fact that he is the salt of the earth in life. The importance of salt can never be over emphasized in a man’s life. Without salt, life becomes boring and tasteless. That is why the Bible says in Matthew 5:13, “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned…” Therefore, a Christian who is indeed the salt of the world should endeavor to constantly retain his flavor on the surface of the earth in life. Salt of course seasons, soothing, preserves and also adds flavor to life. Life that is devoid of salt is always boring and uninteresting. God does not want you as a Christian to lose your flavor because you are a blessing to others in life forever.

In fact, every Christian should program his life in blessing others within and outside his vicinity. When you learn to bless others, your life becomes more meaningful to God and to mankind in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in 1 Peter 3:10, “For ‘He who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit.” In fact, a Christian had been destined by God to be a blessing to humanity and can never be a curse in life. God wants you to use your tongue to bless others and not to curse in life. A Christian’s life becomes more meaningful whenever he learns to bless others and humanity in life forever.

Daily Tip: A Christian is programmed by God in blessing the lives of others within and outside his vicinity in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so (James 3:10).
