Inspiration From My Pastor

(Proverbs 11:25) "A generous person will prosper, and whoever refreshes others will be refreshed."

In a moment of spiritual serendipity, I accidentally posted a draft. It wasn't even a draft, really, just an idea for one; something my pastor from Minnesota posted on his Facebook status. It inspired me, and I thought, "I should write about that."

And thus I posted the scripture from  my pastor and titled as a reminder of the idea I had. That was the accidental part. I merely meant to save it, not publish it.

The blessing came from one who read and commented, reminding me that scripture doesn't need an idea, photos or post built around it.

So, this holiday season, may you reflect upon this verse from Proverbs and find its blessing unadorned. Another way to read it comes from "The Message"--

"The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; 
those who help others are helped."


  1. Ha, ha! Oh, my...this was an "idea." I thought I saved it as a draft. Guess I better flesh it out some. Thanks, Susan!
