Gifts – Need to be Unwrapped!
Have you ever received a gift that you didn’t think much of? So, you place it to one side or bettter still out of sight, forgotten, because you didn’t like. Not wanting to be rude, because it came from a close family member or maybe it was your wife or husband?
If you think something has no relevance to your life or to your today, it will never be opened or truly looked at. Its value remains locked away inside it.
I am only now realising and appreciating one of my gifts, that I never understood before. I have had it all my life, but never realised what it was. God has given us all, gifts of various kinds. Some are very visible because they maybe exceptional, while others can be taken for granted I.e. organisational or administrative skills. But there are many that are practiced in secret, away from public gaze. Seen as nothing special, its potential totally overlooked.
What are you discounting in your life? Pray about it? It’s time to pick that gift up and open it. Time to consider it. Time to use it. There are many gifts I can list 20 that are mentioned biblically. But know there are many many more not listed yet just as valuable.
While we are here it beholds us to make the most of what we potentially have and could be. Better to die empty having actioned all that is possible for us. Than holding back and never trying.
Until my next post. Be the change you want to see.
