A cup of cool water.  A visit at the hospital or prison. A warm and comforting meal.  All things we can do to show mercy to another person, whether in our body of believers or in the community around us.  This week I had the opportunity to make a meal for a couple who is struggling right now.  Last night as I made the meal and prayed for their struggle, I thought, what a great opportunity to truly bless someone.  I don’t have a real gift for cooking but I can follow a recipe.  I don’t love to cook but it is fun to try something new and see if it turns out.  And this case, I get to try it and hopefully bless someone.  Galatians 6:10 says that ‘as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers”.  We are to do good amongst those in our church family, our prayer group, a Bible study group or your group of Christian friends that you hang out with.  So tonight, after delivering the meal, I was pondering this phrase….more blessed to give than receive.  The family that we dropped the meals off to was very thankful and kept saying how blessed they felt.  However, I have to disagree with them and agree with Jesus who said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ (Acts 20:35).  Way more blessed…..
