“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,…” James 1:17
Sometimes gifts are neglected or rejected. Sometimes gifts are undervalued, unappreciated and treated like they’re nothing. But no matter the actions of others, always remember you are a gift from God! The work He has accomplished in you through Jesus is beautiful. Be the gift you are. Freely you have received, freely give. Even though some people behave as though they don’t have a drop of humanity in them, don’t stop being human. Don’t stop being good and doing good. You are blessed to be a blessing. He has enriched your soul. So you can’t just throw up your hands and be done with it all. You can’t sit there offended at the insensitivity of others when their souls haven’t been redeemed and nourished like yours. Forgive. Have the attitude of Christ. Show compassion. You are designed and assigned by God to be a gift in this world. Remember, this place is not your home. You came from God and one day you will return to Him. Until then, keep being the gift you are.
Prayer: Father God, thank You for working in me. You have done a work in my heart and have shown me many things. Thank You. Help guard my heart from negative emotions. Let compassion rise in my heart. When people are insensitive and appear not to be human, help me continue to be what You made me to be. Save them Lord. Cause people to see Christ in me. Be glorified in everything I do and say. In Jesus name, Amen.
