A Smack In The Face

1 Peter 4:10 – As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

James 1:17 – Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Have you ever bought someone a gift, and when you see them with it later, they misuse it? It’s like they don’t care about the thought you put into it nor that you thought of them to get them to get them the gift. Yea, they accepted it and showed gratitude, but then misused something that you felt showed your priceless love to them. How do you think Jesus feels when we take his gift and act like it is nothing? How do you think our saviour feels when he sees us go against his teachings? Think of that. He gave us his life so we can have life eternal. He was beaten and hung on a cross. The gift he gave is more precious than gold or silver, and yet we mistreat it by hanging on to the world. We will hide it like we are ashamed of it. We will even act just like the world, so no one knows the gift we accepted. We need to treat his gift as precious as it is. Show it off, be proud of it, and proclaim the gift of life in Jesus Christ.
