Blessings and Curses

Our actions in the spiritual world are rewarded in two ways, a blessing or a curse. A blessing is the good we receive and a curse is the evil we receive. This definition is supported in the bible with the words, ‘As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.’ No doubt it is better to receive a blessing as opposed to a curse but in order to do this we must first understand how our actions could reward us with either.

The simplest and easiest way of receiving a blessing is to give. In the bible we are taught by our Lord and savior Jesus Christ that, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ Giving is something we should do without looking for rewards. Helping our fellow man should be part of who we are and is in line with the commandment – love thy neighbor as thyself.

Giving does not have to be financial or physical. Sometimes it is better to give time, affection and attention than finance or a physical gift. The latter eventually wear out or get used up living the recipient demanding more. In the Bible God teaches us that it is better to obey than to sacrifice. It is important to give tides in church but we should not let this cloud our judgment. curse breaker Donating large sums of money to a church or other good causes for that matter should be supported by abiding with God’s word. Neglecting our other responsibilities towards family or friends or the man in the street is disobeying the word of God. God is a spirit. He does not abide solely in one place. We must learn that even the time taken to give to the beggar in the street is giving tides to God. Our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, has taught us not to interpret the word of God like robots. We must learn to interpret God’s word spiritually. Our communities are made up of people not structures and God is in people and not in structures. Giving tides to God means loving our neighbors as ourselves and helping those people that need us. If we neglect our responsibilities and simply donate large sums of money for causes that we consider would give us blessings then we won’t receive those blessings. We must all learn to follow the example of the Good Samaritan and give to those that need us rather than give for the sake of giving.

Curses are the rewards of our evil actions. In the bible we are taught that, ‘For as many as are of the works of the law ‘are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to them.’ However we can be forgiven of this action by believing in our Lord and savior Jesus Christ and repenting for our sins through him to God. In this sense the Bible also teaches us that, ‘Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree.’
