Windows on Finance Part 11

Did you know God has channels of blessing? They are like pipelines from heaven to earth through which He sends his abundance. An example of this is in Genesis 12:1-3 where God says to Abraham, “I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Here God is promising that all the families of the earth shall be blessed through Abraham and his offspring. Christians usually think of this in terms of God’s Son Jesus, born of the line of Abraham who made a way for mankind to be reconciled back to God, and this is the greatest spiritual blessing outworking from the Abrahamic covenant. But have you ever thought there could be other ways God uses Abraham’s descendants to bless all the families of the earth?
