“Stop Acting like We Are Doing Someone Else a Favor”

“No matter what the task, let’s give thanks that God blessed us with the ability to do it!” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

…and so did Ecclesiastes 9:10 “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going.”

“A friend of mine from Louisiana asked me to meet with a sister that is new to D.C. and in need of professional guidance and advice. No joke, she has been extremely difficult in simply setting up a time and location to meet for coffee. Yesterday a work colleague told me to just tell her I’m busy and I can’t meet with her. But like I shared with my colleague, we have to stop looking at situations like we are doing someone else a favor. If God has put us in a position to add value to someone’s life then when we do so we are actually honoring God! When we are blessed to minister to others, provide a service to those who need it, or help those in a financial setback, the scriptures remind us – Hey Man – God blessed us with the gift of provision and when we provide to others that’s not a favor to them, THAT’S THE FAVOR OF GOD UPON US! When someone ask us for a favor, we need to thank them for giving us the opportunity to honor the Lord! So, whatever we do let’s not complain, but let’s give thanks for the opportunity to honor the One who has placed His favor on us.” – #ToddCPittman
