Scripture makes it clear that God blesses us not so we can live with greed, but so we can bless others. God loves a cheerful giver. When He sees that someone is giving freely out of love, God blesses them more. We are blessed to be a blessing. God has given everyone different talents to be used for the benefit of others.
You can be a blessing to others by speaking kind words, volunteering in your community, giving to charity, sharing things, giving food, sharing your testimony, praying for someone in need, listening to someone, etc.
There is always an opportunity to bless someone. The more we seek to bless others, God will provide for us and open more doors to accomplish His will. Let’s find out below more ways we can bless others.

2. 2 Corinthians 9:8-11 Besides, God is able to make every blessing of yours overflow for you, so that in every situation you will always have all you need for any good work.

In every way you will grow richer and become even more generous, and this will cause others to give thanks to God because of us,
