blessed to be a blessing
Good morning sisters and brothers,
This passage might be the essential passage about God's calling. God calls Abraham to an adventure he doesn't understand. Like all of us, Abraham is called to follow God into the unknown. God choses Abraham and blesses him to be a blessing to others. That's our calling now too.
Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. 2I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. 3I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
