Use Your Gift

Each of you has received a gift to use to serve others. Be good servants of God’s gifts of grace. 1 Peter 4:10 (NCV)

Have you ever bought or made what you thought was the perfect gift for someone? You spent time deciding what the gift would be. You waited with anticipation to see the excitement on their face when they opened it. The day came to give them the gift and you could see they did not love it as much as you expected. A small part of you was sad that it didn’t work out like you expected.

God, our creator, made us knowing what our perfect gifts would be. He made big plans for us. He knew at what point in all of history that He wanted us to live in and how He would use us to shape our point in history. He knit us together before we were born (Psalm 139:13). Imagine how God feels as He watches us not fulfill the destiny He created us for. Start using your gifts today to change the world!
