THE RESPONSIBILITY OF BLESSINGS

3 Daily Devotional Wednesday

“All these blessings will come upon you and overtake you if you obey the Lord your God” (Deuteronomy 28:2).

An awareness of God’s blessings creates a corresponding burden of responsibility; to share and participate in the relief of human suffering and injustice; to be advocates for the voiceless and the powerless. For those who live in American affluence with no such sense of awareness, it’s as if they were born into this world standing on third base and think the resulting triple was the result of their own giftedness, hard work, and perseverance. Such arrogance reveals a self-crowned, deified existence; that they are a god of their own making and the creator of their own destiny.
