Hummmmmmm, what pops in your mind when you think about a gift?
Do you think of money, a car, a vacation, do you think of materialistic things or small sentiments.
What crosses your mind when you think about the word?
Last night Shanti (my bestie) and I were talking about how we can have something in our possession but totally miss out by not getting the full use or have an understanding on how to utilize it.
As we were talking she said God gave “‘me this as a gift”. I said now ain’t that a word? We started cracking up because surely it is.
So back to the first question. God just gave you a gift.
What is a gift? (It could be a person, materials, or whatever you perceive as a gift)
How sentimental is the gift to you?
What did you do the show your appreciation for that gift?
I know for myself I’ve fumbled the ball in the area of really noticing that something is a gift. That it was my time to do the in wrapping. How about the gift of having my mom in my life. My mom believed in many times where I didn’t believe in myself.
The Word says that if we give good gifts to our children, just imagine how much better how much better are the gifts from me (paraphrasing)
God not only care about of outer but He is concern about the inner more part to. And as a child of the kings of Kings I can’t imagine what mines will be.
God is faithful to see the things he speaks about truth.
Know your gifts, understand your gifts, and push to succeed in that gift.
Be sweet 🍯
