In reading Gregory Dickow’s message in “Fasting From Wrong Thinking,” I got to thinking how as we bless others, as we put others first in the things we do, God blesses us. Gregory Dickow talks about not having a survivor attitude, which is really a self-centered existence, how we should remember that we can live the abundant life God created us to live, and we can make a difference in the lives of others. In business, this means making a difference in the lives of those we rub shoulders with in all aspects of our business life.
If we treat our customers, clients, coworkers, business associates, comrades, even superiors with the utmost respect, if we always strive to put their needs above our own, if we never waiver from doing what is right no matter what the circumstances might be, God will bless us in ways we may not even imagine. Gregory Dickow shares with us in his writing about how Abraham put Lot first in Genesis 13:8-17 and by doing so, God blessed him more than he could contain!!
If we will ask God to put a burning desire in our hearts to improve other people’s lives, to add value to them, to consider their needs above our own, then we will open the door to prosperity beyond our wildest dreams!
Always remember, in Christ we are more than conquerors. Let us conquer the ways we bless others so that we in turn will be blessed by God.
