So it goes like a lamb after a month of roaring like a lion? Today March ends, 1/4 of the 2014 in the record books. It’s probably a good day to reassess those new years commitments. You know the ones that you were so gungho about until the winter blahs froze all your good intentions! As the spring really settles in this week, let it reinvigorate you with new-found drive.
Speaking of drive, and passionate and all of those skills that you do have. I found it quite humbling when I stumbled into this little diddy this weekend.
“What do you have that you did not receive? If then you received it, why do you boast as if it were not a gift?” 1 Cor. 4:7
It’s a concept that is quite novel in some ways, yet so obvious in other ways. Everything we have we received from others in some sort of capacity. And those things that you attempt to claim as your own creations are a gift from the creator Himself. And when you consider all of those things – your stuff, your skills, your talents, your money – as gifts, it changes how you think about and use all of that stuff.
So as you go about doing today, remember the gifts you have been given and live so.
