Hey Everyone, Sorry I didn't do a blog last week but I was so busy but I'm back!
What are some of the things we know about gifts? Typically, gifts are free. They usually come from people who like us most of the time and they are valuable. It didn't cost us anything to attain it. Now let's consider for a minute, are we gifts? We? You and I, are we as individuals gifts? Are we valuable? If we give ourselves freely over to others are they better off? Does the recipient feel pleased and excited? Let the record of God show that you are a valuable gift actually priceless.
Do we know we're valuable and try to hide our usefulness as in hide-n-seek or are we clueless to our status? Have we not understood that it is an honor to be used and considered a gift? Are we only seeing the trees and not the forest? Are we only seeing the time and work spent and haven't envisioned the long term effects we'll have on people? We often feel used when we should feel invigorated, inspired, and in anticipation for the reward that will surely come. If we see no reward we should consider our motivate.
Feel freedom, excitement, and joy with the fact that God would gift you so bountifully that everybody wants a piece of you. Don't feel used. In the words of my Apostle, "man can't use you only God can".
What would the world be like if everybody used their God-given gifts freely without restriction?
Until next time.....
