Blessing the Assembly

Solomon faced the completed temple and blessed the Lord. “Then the king turned around and blessed the whole assembly of Israel, while all the assembly of Israel was standing” (1 Kings 8:14).
First Kings 8:15-21 shows how Solomon blessed Israel.
First, he blessed the Lord, then Solomon blessed the Lord’s people. Let us do things in the same order, seeing that we should be a blessing to others, even as Solomon saw himself.
Often we look for others to bless us, but the Lord has called us to be a blessing even as He called Abraham to be a blessing to the world. Let us follow the examples of Solomon and Abraham.
This coming Lord’s Day, look for opportunities to be a blessing to those at the worship assembly.
