Jesus showed us why we are here. We are like seasoning. We spice things up. We bring out the flavor that without us is bland. We take natural things and make it supernatural. So what happens if we loose our flavoring? How will people taste the aroma of our seasoning? If we don’t spice things up we will loose our usefulness and end up in the garbage.
May we always bring our Fathers flavor to a bland world!!
There is my way and God’s way. What happens when we live God’s way? Imagine an orchard and the fruit that it produces. That is what God does for us. It is a gift because He loves us so much and is so very good. His gifts are like fruit just showing up one day. Bam!!!
So what are some of the gifts he gives us so freely? A real affection for others. Nothing fake at all. How about that amazing exuberance for living every day for Him? Remember the serenity that comes from knowing that He is so great? How about that compassion we sensed one day when normally we wouldn’t even care? And that conviction that we have never experienced before. A sense of being set apart for God and His purpose.
Now here is a gift worth receiving. Finding ourselves involved in loyal commitments we have never imagined before.
May we marshal our energy wisely taking full advantage of His gifts.
