Those who Inspire others to Aspire, never Expire! Your gift, talent or greatest interest is your advantage and blessing, don't hoard it, but share it generously! That's the whole essence of life. And that's also how sharing what good things we have, love, and enjoy most; promote us in every dimension astronomically, Hallelujah!
Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christís body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other. In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. Donít just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.
Please see also Proverbs 22:29; Proverbs 27:17.
Contrary to public opinion, great wealth or good success is not how much we have, reserved and stored away, but how much our resources benefit or produce positive results in others. That's why God wants us, the Church, who are His heirs to be stupendously rich, in order to use wealth as a tool for doing good works and evangelism. Please see 1Timothy 6:17-19; 2Corithians 8:9.
On the same note, acquiring and storing all the knowledge or wisdom there is, is of little value to God and our purpose on earth, unless we share it, to sharpen and bless others. In this case, hoarding our gifts could be synonymous with burying our talents, usually accompanied by grievous consequences. See Matthew 25:29, 30. We can't deny the fact that we all sometimes contend with that compulsive, insidious temptation, to allow pride, self conceit, timidity, or even nonchalance, to make us misuse or underutilize our gifts.
The righteous are as bold as a lion. We must take bold steps of faith to reach out and meet needs, with whatever we have, even if it's just one persons need. Compassion - which is feeling the hurt of the other person - is the mother of amazing miracles! Do it, not because of your reward but for their reward, then your reward can never be delayed or denied, Hallelujah!
Oh, the joys of those who are kind to the poor (needy, afflicted, oppressed etc)! The LORD rescues them when they are in trouble. The LORD protects them and keeps them alive. He gives them wealth and blessing in the land and rescues them from their enemies. The LORD nurses them when they are sick and restores them to health.
Have a marvelous day in God's awesome presence.
