CAN A BLESSING TURN A CURSE?
TEXT: MALACHI 2:2
BIBLE TEXT:
“If ye will not hear…to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart” (Malachi 2:2).
God warns His children against misuse of His blessings. It is the ultimate Old Testament theme: blessing for obedience and cursing for disobedience. God granted Lot and his family the favour of escaping from Sodom before its destruction. But Lot’s wife lost the privilege due to disobedience and became a pillar of salt. The earth was blessed by God after creation but was cursed for Adam’s disobedience. As believers, Christ has made us priests; as such we are bound by the same injunction in our text above. We ought to preserve and promote God’s Word for it is our duty to preach the gospel to the sinful world. God doesn’t like being taken for granted. If we honour Him with our lives, He will also honour us, but if we despise Him, we shall face the consequence. Sin takes away the blessings of God. Anything misused, turns a curse, be it riches, talents or beauty. In order to retain God’s blessings in our lives and ministries, we must keep hearing and obeying the Word of God.

Challenge: Choose to make your blessings permanent.
Prayer: Thank you Lord, for your bountiful blessings.
Quote: Sin takes away the blessings of God.
