God gives you gifts!

Do you know what God created you for? Do you know what your purpose is? There are things you need to do in order to fulfill your purpose.

The first thing you must do is recognize the gifts God has given you to use. These are the cards you are dealt in life. They include the things you can’t control – your parents, your nationality, your race, your language. They also include your SHAPE – your spiritual gifts, heart, abilities, personality and experiences. These are the things that make you uniquely you.

Now you are not responsible for the gifts God didn’t give you. In other words, if you are not musically gifted, you are not expected to play the guitar like my son. But you are responsible for the ones he did give you.

When you get to heaven, God isn’t going to compare you with anyone else, but he will compare you with yourself. What did you do with what you were given?
