Principle: I am blessed to be a blessing
This is a foundational text for me:
The LORD said to Abram, "Leave your country, your people and your father's household and go to the land I will show you.
I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."
So Abram left, as the LORD had told him; and Lot went with him.

--Genesis 12: 1-4
 
This is the beginning of the calling of God's people. This is where the story really begins. And the story begins like this: God desires to be in covenant relationship with humanity. And God picks one person to start the particular story we find ourselves in, and God says: you are blessed, you and all your heirs, for a purpose. And that purpose is to be a blessing to the world.

All too often we get it backward. We'd rather say that God blesses us so that we'll feel good, or that God will bless us so that we get ahead financially, or that we'll be safe, or that we'll be unafraid, or that we won't get sick... we tend, in short, to be inwardly focused. But God's mission has always been outward, not inward.

That blessing has a purpose: I am supposed to be a blessing to the world.

The God always leads its humans towards the righteous path of the glory and the blessing. If we are able to understand the teaching of the God we are surely blessed. In many holy books God try to convince the humans to do great things for you and your nation then I will bless you and your name.

This is the most beautiful blog which I have read in days. In it, she is explaining that God has given her the right path: the path of Abraham. She has now a very firm relationship with God and is telling that it is a beautiful path. It is very emotional and motivational.

The worry of defeat looms over the ones college students who don’t work difficult for the duration of the normal instructions and hope for success in final tests. Never miss to get more ideas and information from this http://cutprintfilm.com/features/lists-2/10-inspirational-movies-every-college-student-must-watch/ article. They can not get advantageous and required final results in any state of affairs because they don’t recognize the fundamentals of trying exams.
