PART OF A WIDER CIRCLE

Isn't it so like God to give each of one us opportunities to discover how to be a blessing—how to individually and tangibly touch other lives with the sweetness of His healing presence? As a hymn in the Christian Science Hymnal observes, "For blessings flow where'er He reigns" (No. 272).

It seems to me that we all yearn to be a blessing. Figuring out how best to accomplish that goal may not always be easy—the options are endless. We can teach. Help a neighbor. Become active in church or community service. Maybe just be a good listener. I'm still finding my way, but a milestone for me has been in realizing that simply being on the giving side is only half the story. Without generously accepting what others are doing for us, the circle of blessing is never quite complete.
