To do good works won't buy you a ticket to Heaven yet as one of God's creations, we are called to share who Jesus is and all the cool things God has done in our lives.
Each of us have different gift sets and while you might be similar to another person, there is no one exactly like you. What gifts, talents, or skill sets do you have that could be used to inspire, encourage, and share hope with others?
One of the ways I utilize is through the gift of words. Mostly written, and sometimes through speech. While Mom hasn't responded to many blogs lately, she's still sharing the blog with those she meets. One woman asked, "How many books has she written?" Mom's response made me smile, "Five or six, five I think, she hasn't finished that sixth one." as she looked at me and smiled.
My speaking venues vary. I've been the guest speaker on Sunday mornings for various churches, at women's events, retreats, church meetings, dinners, at events for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and in an educational setting. Each offers a different audience yet the opportunity to share hope, inspiration, and encouragement with others is the same.
I don't know the impact my little bit has in the greater picture but one thing I do understand, we are called to use the gifts God's given us to grow the Kingdom of Heaven. There are more than enough rooms for everyone, all someone has to do is open the door to their heart and let God in.
What is your best attribute,
