Don’t be obsessed with getting your own 
advantage. Forget yourselves long enough 
to lend a helping hand 
(Philippians 2:4 MSG).
friday 20
Sometimes it’s easy to think, “Since no one 
cares about me, I won’t care about anyone!” 
Don’t be that way. Be the one to remember, care for, 
and love others! Be the first to love. Be the blesser and 
the giver. The blessing you get from receiving is less, 
compared to that which you get from giving to others. 
Jesus said, “...It is more blessed to give than to receive”  
(Acts 20:35).
God’s promise isn’t to the one who receives but to 
the one who gives. So, rather than seek attention, for 
example, give it instead. Give love. Demonstrate love 
to everyone, including those who may have offended 
you, and to the ungodly that have no hope. That’s how 
God wants you to live. 
Some people only know how to enjoy attention; 
they only crave love from others. That’s dangerous, 
because when they don’t get the love and attention 
they seek, they could become cruel and wicked. You’re 
the seed of Abraham, and the seed of Abraham reaches 
out; he’s a blesser; he hears the cry of the needy and 
You’re the answer the world is looking for; you’re 
the one to meet other people’s needs. You may not 
think so about yourself, but it’s the truth. Genesis 26:4, 
referring to you, the real spiritual seed of Abraham, 
says, “…in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be 
blessed.”  Galatians 3:29 says,  “And if ye be Christ’s, 
then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to 
the promise.” 
You’re blessed in blessing others. Your greatness 
is in making others great. That’s where real joy is. It’s a 
higher way to live when you learn to look away from 
yourself and become concerned about the needs of 
others and be the blesser and the giver. 
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for granting me the 
grace, wisdom, and strength to raise and build others, 
helping them discover their greatness, and limitless 
potentials in life. Through me, your blessings flow so 
bountifully to others, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Genesis 12:2; Luke 6:27-32
