Am I wasting God’s gifts?
In this week full of Thanksgiving, I wanted to give you some food for thought in regards to how we sometimes waste our God-given gifts.
This isn’t about guilt or our shortcomings or “should-ing” on ourselves.
Instead it’s about finding the motivation to do better.
We know when we’re falling short. Just today I procrastinated on this email and didn’t use the gift of time wisely. I fettered away hours with distractions.
The strength to overcome my own bad habits and shortcomings doesn’t come from myself.
It’s the sames reason we shouldn’t be prideful when we fast. It’s not about what I can do alone for myself. It’s the opposite.
God gives us this strength. I find that so comforting that I don’t have to rely on myself. He is with me.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
Love to all,
