A lot of us have a mindset that we want to make a difference in this world. In fact, God deposited that mindset into us because His ultimate goal is to bless us so that we can be a blessing (Gen. 12:2-3). However, that goal cannot be reached without developing relationships with others.

Developing relationships with others requires us to be selfless. It’s going to require some time, sacrifices, and energy. We may have to go out of our way to help someone else. We may have to stay up late encouraging a person. We may have to spend a little extra money to be a blessing.

What we’re doing is depositing relational seeds in the earth. Our relational seeds may be the spark to help that person develop their dreams or have the mindset of a healthy marriage. We could be the reason why they’ve become closer to God or disciplined in their finances. We could be the only genuine Christ-like love they experience in the earth.

Let’s not be so inwardly focused. Let’s pour out our knowledge, wisdom, and love into someone else to truly impact others who can make a difference in the world.

Proverbs 11:25 (MSG) The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped.
