Just the mere fact that I can bless others means that I am blessed. I live of a very small government pention, don't work due to medical, so I am not always able to bless financialy, but by helping where I can, being an inspiration,, and sharing what God does for me, i am able to bless others. Many times I am blessed with finances then I am able to bless someone else as well in that regard. I usualy greet people with the words;'Be blessed to be a blessing. I want my life to be a blessing because I have been blessed so many times. My life was spared on the operating table many times and I believe i am still alive to bless others. I do not live anymore, my life is gone, it belongs to God now to use mr in which ever way He wants, to be a blessing for Him and the people He cares for. May you be blessed to be a blessing.

I'm doing both ofcourse!!!!!! I am blessed so that I can be a blessing to others. That's the whole purpose of the blessings; they are to bless your fellow man.

I am too busy just trying to survive from one day to the next to worry about who is blessing who. I just want to know that my bills are paid. Everything else is just gravy after that.

Hello my friend seymiss Ji, In fact, what I understood by your discussion taht one should either be "to be blessed', means one should be young, so blessings would flow from elders, we are aged persons, who can bless others, so I said we are in later half of your discussion. Any more claerifications required, I would do endlessly. May god bless You nad have a great time.

For me, I think it is always good to be Blessed while being a Blessing to and for others as well. Because in turn no one can just give or just take without exhausting themselves and others in the process. It needs to be a little bit of balance in everyone's life and I feel when I am giving to others I am being a Blessing but at the same time when I attend Church and allow others to do things for me I am blessed as well.
