Each one of us has a ministry in our daily lives. We have been blessed in a variety of ways. How can we share our blessings with others? What might be your ministry of affirmation? Making hospital calls? Offering a “mom’s day out”? Might you visit a nursing home, provide a meal for a family in crisis, read a book to a home-bound person, bake bread for a soup kitchen, drive someone to a doctor’s appointment, offer to grocery shop for someone who can’t?
Make a list of the things you like to do. You may well have gifts you didn’t realize could be a blessing to others!
This message is adapted from “Blessed to Be a Blessing” written by Kathy J. Magnus in the January 1992 issue of Lutheran Woman Today (now Gather) magazine. Today we remember Barnabas, apostle.
