TITLE: TOOLS IN HIS TOOLBOX

Over the centuries mankind has used thousands of different tools to create some of the most beautiful masterpieces the world has ever known. Painters have used brushes and color to share the images of their mindís eye. With hammer and nails, great builders have made structures that have reached into the heavens. Writers using imagination, pen, and paper have produced stories that have entirely captured our hearts. All these things have required different skills and instruments, but each individual using these items has something in common.

Every person carries the genes of the first man created, named Adam. Adam was created in the image of God; the creator of not only man, but all of the universe and time itself. As God was speaking the moon into existence, He also gave the moon its task of controlling the ocean tides. The same goes for every creature and thing God created, including us. Only with people God gave certain gifts and abilities to certain persons, and to others a different set.

The abilities God has given to each of us are not our own to hoard for ourselves. They are not for raking in stacks of cash or scaling the walls of fame. These gifts are meant to be shared with others, helping other people who are in need of our services. For each person is a tool in the Makerís box, individually crafted for a specific task, and only in His hand will we be able to fulfill our purpose.

This should only be an outline of maybe chapter one. When will the rest be coming out?

Put in a chapter urging humility since it is God's gift and not our own doing.

Also put in a chapter urging us to practice to develop our gift. Most of us need to.

Very well thought out and written.
