Romans 15:2 Each of us should please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. 3 For even Christ did not please Himself, but as it is written: “The insults of those who insult You have fallen on Me.”

When was the last time you did anything nice for someone without expecting something back? When was the last time you simply wanted to be a blessing? When was the last time you gave someone a “just because” gift? As the majority of the world is thinking of themselves, it’s important for the believer to please someone else.

Being a blessing to someone else can go a long way. Our kind act could be the very thing that encourages someone else to get through the rest of the week. We could be the blessing they prayed for, thereby solidifying their faith in God. Our actions could be the beginning of a ripple effect that blesses someone we’ve never met.

Our kind acts won’t go unnoticed by God. God promises to reward us knowing that whatsoever good thing any person does, the same shall they receive of the Lord (Eph. 6:8). So go out and be a blessing.
