Scripture: Psalm 126:3

Blessings are raining down, like meteor showers, all around us, but not actually on you or me.

There are no blessings in our waiting hands, none in our empty cups.

We must be invisible!

Then someone says, “Have a blessed day,” and that changes everything!

With those four little words, someone has shared their blessings with us.

Did they have so many blessings that their cup was running over?

How many blessings did they share?

Are our cups now full and will they also run over?

We’ve gone from feeling totally invisible to enjoying an abundance of blessings, because someone not only cared, but shared – what an excellent example of improving our world.

Thank you, Lord, for sending blessings upon blessings, even when our cups are already full. Help us remember that when we share our blessings, we are praising you. Amen.

A daily Lenten devotional reprinted with permission from The Society of St. Andrew to inspire help sharing nourishing food with neighbors in need. 

Every $1 donated provides more than 40 servings to those in greatest need. A donation of $47 for the 47 days in Lent provides more than 1,880 servings. 

What a way to celebrate the resurrection of hope and lift the cup of salvation for our hungry neighbors!
