Today’s culture has minimized the very idea of “gifts.” We live in a time when many of us return gifts we don’t necessarily like, ask for gift cards to get what we want, and some of us even “regift” items we have found no use for.
But God’s gifts to us are given to or bestowed upon us out of a relationship of love, meant for us to live out God’s purposes. Our giftedness is part of the marvelous complexity of who we are (Psalm 139:13-14, NLT) and are the vehicles through which do the “good works” God has prepared for us to walk in (Eph 2:10). These gifts are not to be returned or traded in, but are to be used to bless others.
Click below for a Power Point presentation that I taught from at Greater Grace Temple in Detroit. Michigan, with Lady Crisette Ellis (@LadyCrisette) and the Powerful Women of Purpose’s 5th Annual Boot Camp. In it I share 10 lessons on being “gifted” and give you 4 things you must do in response to God’s gifting of you.
