Cursed Blessings?

On first blush it seems to me that “cursed blessings” is a huge oxymoron; on par with “jumbo shrimp” and “military intelligence.” On second thought, however, I realize we have cursed blessings all around us. Marriage (a gift from God) is a total disaster once invaded by sin. Children (again, an incredible gift from God) are molested, murdered, abused in ways only Satan could imagine. Sex, invented by God himself, is used for everything but what its Creator intended. Once I thought about it more, I began to realize all of our blessings can be cursed if they are not consistently managed with the fear of the Lord. Since all Christians are called to be priests, and since all Christians have been blessed with many things, we’d do well to consider how priests were commanded to manage their blessings. With those two realities in mind, read and pray through this Scripture considering how some of your “cursed blessings” may actually be a result of your own actions or inactions with God.

“And now this admonition is for you, O priests. If you do not listen, and if you do not set your heart to honor my name,” says the Lord Almighty, “I will curse your blessings. Yes, I have already cursed them, because you have not set your heart to honor me.” Malachi 2:1-2

In Christ,
