What we are is God’s gift to us, what we do with ourselves is our gift to God. ‘Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows’ -James 1:17(NIV)
With the gifts he has given us what do we give him in return we ask ourselves?
Do we sometimes do what we want before putting God’s preference first?
I know I do and that prevents serving Him in the way He has wanted.
God is the Father of all light who created the sun and stars in the heavens – How amazing is that?
He said ‘Let there be light and there was light’. Our sun rises and sets and it’s rhythm is unchanging as is God’s unconditional love for us all.
From God comes every good and perfect gift relating to this life and that which is to come. He has given us the gift of renewing ourselves through the power of forgiveness and grace.
Can we open ourselves to His light of faith and offer our gifts to those around us with a servant heart?
In doing so we can ask for His guidance in achieving His will and give him the first fruits of our labours as our gift to Him.
Make someone feel special today by offering a gift and see the delight it brings.
