“God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.” — 2 Corinthians 9:8
No matter what phase of life you are in, there will always be someone who has more — more money, more followers on social media, more time. For many people, the pursuit of more leaves them on a never-ending quest for something that is ultimately infinite and unattainable — ‘more’.
God invites us to focus on the abundance of gifts that we possess, instead of what we don’t have. When we claim the gifts God has given us, we discover that we have much to be thankful for and far more opportunities to make an impact in the world than we often realize.
Find a piece of paper and a pen and make a list of the gifts — skills, relationships, opportunities, resources, etc — that are a part of your life. Put the list somewhere that you will see it again tomorrow. Take a moment to give thanks to good for these gifts and look for one way that you could share one of those gifts to build up the body of Christ.
