In one way we can decide to give our talents through acts of worship and service. Maybe you have a musical talent that you can use to sing praises to Him. Or maybe you're a great cook and you can offer a delicious meal to a person in need. Or how about an accountant who loves to do taxes, you could offer a US citizen help in this area since we're in the thick of "tax season". But what may be more difficult is your goods, your material possessions. How does one offer a possession to the Lord? An act of service is so much easier, right? But that good may not be given directly to the Lord but to one who He loves, a neighbor. We see many asking for money on the streets, and if you're like me I often feel a nudge to give. Maybe for once we trust that the Lord will ensure the receiver uses the money wisely. Or one of my favorite ways is to buy more than I need at the grocery store and give it to those I see on my way home. Maybe you have a closet bursting a the seems and you could give a clothing donation. Or what if you find the actual perfect gift for a friend whom you know would treasure that item. Let them know you were thinking of them and cherish their friendship by giving a thoughtful gift. You could also do this for your husband or children, or how about for your mom or sibling?
Truly the options are endless when we become aware of all we have and maybe the need around us. When we give with the attitude of Jesus our gifts will be used in ways we may not even be able to imagine.
Follow along for the remaining days as it's never to late to draw close to Jesus.
