Blessing Blessing

    At age 16, Andor Foldes was already a skilled pianist, but he was experiencing a troubled year. In the midst of the young Hungarian’s personal struggles, one of the most renowned pianists of the day came to Budapest.

    Emil von Sauer was famous not only for his abilities, he was also the last surviving pupil of the great Franz Liszt. Von Sauer requested that Foldes play for him. Foldes obliged with some of the most difficult works of Bach, Beethoven, and Schumann. When he finished, von Sauer walked over to him and kissed him on the forehead. “My son,” he said, “when I was your age I became a student of Liszt. He kissed me on the forehead after my first lesson, saying, ‘Take good care of this kiss — it comes from Beethoven, who gave it to me after hearing me play.’ I have waited for years to pass on this sacred heritage, but now I feel you deserve it.”

God has blessed the lives of His children...
    Like the famed pianist, God wishes for nothing more than to pass His blessings to us. God has blessed the lives of His children throughout history with our most needed items... rain, food and clothing, the preservation of life, children, and prosperity. Even more than that, however, we have this promise from Him, told to us through the apostle Paul:

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him!” (1 Corinthians 2:9)

    Through God and His Holy Spirit we are truly blessed each day with renewed hope and freshness of life through our faith and love in our Savior Jesus. This week, thank God for the blessings He has shown in your life and find a way to pass that blessing on to others.
