“The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it.” (Proverbs 10:22, NKJV).

Just last week in my office this verse of the scripture popped into my mind. As always I started to meditate on it. It seemed quite a simple verse that looked straight forward. Apparently, it was wasn’t new to me but God had things to teach me from it. And what He taught me I’m going to share with you.

According to the verse above, God’s blessing has the capacity to do one thing: to make one rich. The characteristic feature of the riches that God’s blessing brings is one that is not accompanied with sorrow. The blessing of the Lord is an empowerment to be rich. And the absence of pain, struggles, sorrow is an indication that it came from God.

A lot of us, sincerely in our hearts, want to be a blessing to our world. In fact, we often say that we are a blessing to other people. God is saying that the criteria for qualifying to be a blessing is that you have the capacity to make others and your world rich. Rich here refers to adding value. It is not just about money. It talks of making rich in terms of the spiritual, financial, material, social, emotional, etc. It is all encompassing.

You can’t say you are a blessing and you are causing other people pain emotionally. No spouse that deliberately hurts his/her partner is a blessing to that partner. As an employer, when you set up a system that never adds value to your employees career-wise or even financially, how are you a blessing? When you steal the peace of other people or create an environment that never allows growth, you become the opposite of a blessing- a curse. Be a blessing today and not a curse. Great week ahead my friend. #BeInspired.
