How Are You? – Cody

“How are you?” It is a question that we ask a lot. It is a question that we are asked a lot. I know that when I pick up my children from school, it is one of the first questions that I ask. Most of the time the response is “good”. Once in a while, it leads us into a discussion about what they did or didn’t like about their day. But no matter what, it is always centered around my desire for them to have a good day and be happy. Unfortunately, we live in a world where we are not promised happiness. But we are promised that God is with us. Emmanuel.
This month, my goal is to ask my children the question “How have you been a blessing to others?” God calls us to walk beside people… to be with them through the good times and the hard times… to help them when we can, to love them right where they are, and to show them kindness, compassion, patience and gentleness. We are called to bless those around us every single day, as God has blessed us. So I challenge you to be a blessing, and ask those around, “How have you been a blessing to others?” You may just see the “Emmanuel” spirit spread in ways you never thought possible!
