Scripture: Luke (KJV) 4:38 And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon’s house. And Simon’s wife’s mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her.
39 And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them.
Observation: I noticed in this verse that Simon’s mother-in-law was healed by Jesus and she immediately began ministering to those around her. Her healing enabled her to serve. God loves to bless people; but He also wants them to have the joy of passing those blessing to others.
Application: God’s blessings to me, be they healings, strength, finances, etc. are not just meant for my benefit. I am blest to be a blessing. I wonder how God feels when I ask for more finances when the last time I spent what He gave me only on myself? It is good to be free from pain, but healing should enable me to do something for someone else even if it is just telling them what God has done for me.
Prayer: Lord, my life is full of your blessings. May I be as generous to others and you have been to me. Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
