passing the baton, sharing the blessing

Yesterday I wrote a tongue-in-cheek irony-laden bloggage about us being better than God at delegating. Today I want to offer the antidote to that: when God’s Spirit inspires people to say, “Yes” when a task is delegated they spread blessing far and wide. Let me give you an example:

This morning I have been blessed and encouraged by two different people who have said, “Yes” when I asked them if they could take on a task – when I passed the baton to them. That has blessed me because it means that I no longer have to worry about those tasks and I know that they will be done better and more diligently than if I tried to do them.

By the simple act of saying, “Yes” to help others these kind people have not only blessed me but they will bless the other people whom they are helping too, and lighten the burden on still others. The blessing is multiplied! In fact, the people who have said, “Yes” probably won’t ever know quite how many people they have blessed by their generous acts of service.

Today I have already had the opportunity to be blessed and be a blessing. May you have that experience too.

Be blessed, be a blessing.
