We Can...USE OUR GIFTS
 
Focus Scriptures: 

2 Timothy 1:1-14     Luke 17:5-10

We all have different gifts that God has given us. Combine those gifts with a faith in Christ instilled in our hearts and we can do amazing things. Jesus told us that even with faith the size of one of the smallest seeds on earth we can move mountains.  Paul reminds us that in order for our gifts and abilities to amount to anything we need to use them. Just as a fire grows when given more oxygen, we also need to “fan the flames” of our gifts and we will see them grow. Use your abilities to help others and make the world more beautiful. God gave them to you for that purpose. We need to have confidence in the Holy Spirit working in us and continue to do the work God designed us for. There is no goal to reach, and there is no being better than anyone else because we are grace people. As grace people we can use our gifts to make the world a better place together.

Power of Perspective

“He said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’” Luke 16: 30-31. Abraham is teaching the “Rich Man” about the blinding power of our perspective in how we look at the world and the people around us. Often we do not see the magnitude of our blessings in this life and we miss out on many opportunities to share God’s mercy with other people. Jesus uses the dramatic example of the rich man to show the power of perspective and the importance of faith in our current life. Jesus is also showing that there is a deep connection between the faith of the Hebrew people and the faith in the resurrection to come.  Prayer: “Open my eyes that I may see your call to love in my neighbor this day. Amen.”
