I came that you might have life and have it to the full (John 10:10).

Or have it abundantly, amazingly, graciously, generously . . . and to overflowing. Jesus came to lavish us with his life. He is truly the Prodigal (Lavish) God, who spares no expense and who holds nothing back. 

We are blessed.

First because God loves to bless us.

Second and even greater, because God loves to bless others through us.

Third and greatest of all, God loves to recreate us in his own image, so that we too love to bless others. Not just allow God to bless others through us. No. We take up the active role of those who bless others with what we have been given.

So may you be richly blessed by God, spiritually alive, emotionally healthy, physically strong, mentally alert, relationally attentive to all this day has for you.

Then, may you offer all that you are and all that you have - for the sake of others. As you do this, you will find (and not surprisingly) you are even more blessed.
