Don’t Deserve It . . . Worth It

A friend shared that perhaps he didn’t feel he deserved God’s greatest blessings. I said we don’t deserve any of it, including the grace of salvation. That would mean we had to earn it. God bestows His blessings and grace as a free gift. That said, are we worth it? Absolutely!

As a parent, I don’t love my daughters because they deserve it. They don’t have to do or be anything to be worth loving. Are they worth my undying love? You bet!

God does give direction around what will bring on blessings. Deuteronomy 28:1-2 says that if you will diligently obey the Lord, being careful to follow His commandments, blessing shall come upon you and overtake you. Obeying Him is a gateway to blessing, yet again, it doesn’t mean we deserve it.

God wants to bless us richly! Sometimes He’s just waiting for us to ask.
