#Hopewriterlife Challenge: Craft

View this post on Instagram

Years ago, my friend mentioned a movie she would like to get on DVD if it ever was available, back when DVDs were brand new. We looked for it at the time, but it was nowhere to be found. Recently, I thought about it again and did a deep dive on the internet to find it. When I gave it to her, she was so happy! She never thought she would be able to see this movie again, one that she had watched often with her family when she was little. It was the perfect gift for her.⁠ ⁠ Today, you may have the perfect gift that will help someone. Whether it is preparing a sermon, cleaning, cooking a meal for a friend, practicing a song for the worship team, writing a book, or helping someone with a job resume, God gifts His children with different gifts and asks us to be willing to use them to serve Him. ⁠ ⁠ As fallible people, we tend to look at some gifts as more important than others. Sometimes, the more public gifts are highly esteemed, but those people are also vulnerable to harsher criticism that is based on preference rather than Scripture. Other times, the quieter gifts are underappreciated, and those with them risk resentment, lack of feedback, or burnout. No matter how you use your skills and gifts to craft your service to the Lord, remember that the Bible says, “There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.” 1 Corinthians 12:6 NIV Celebrate each other’s gifts, and don’t look down on or envy other’s gifts.⁠ ⁠ Ask God to bring someone to mind who you can help today with the gifts He has given you!⁠ ⁠ I am using the #hopewriterlife challenge to encourage others onto love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24).
