Who you are….

30 Jan

The other day I touched on this subject when I mentioned the gift God gave us: God’s gift to us is who we are and our gift to God is who we become.

Today I will expand on it a bit. Who we become, is our gift to God as well as our gift to the world. We are at any point in time the sum total of the choices we made in our life. These choices, good and bad, help form who we are today. Character and disposition are formed as well. This should caution one to make the best decisions possible to become the best person we can.

Your input will determine your output, so guard what you put in and you won’t be put out.

Basically this what life is all about, what you put into life is what you will reap in the end. I remember my parents and grandfather drilling this into me as I was growing up and I’m sure your parents pushed the same. But did we listen or just add it to the pile of all the other stuff they tried to warn us about. I know, at the time, I knew better but fate always has a way of pointing out our mistakes. Hindsite is always 20/20 and in my case I was shown many times just how smart my parents were. I’m sure most, if not all, of you can look back and say the same thing.

What’s the matter with us humans? Were human, that is exactly the answer. God gave us freewill to make our own choices, knowing we would do some stupid stuff in life. The best part of is that He is always there to forgive us and help guide us back to where we belong. All we have to do is trust Him.

Trust – wow that is a big word, how do you trust someone you haven’t even seen. That called for Faith. Faith is best defined in Hebrews chapter 11 verse one:

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

So having Faith in God is also trusting that He will do as He promised. It took me several tries to finally get it right and I can say I put all my trust in Him. Yes, I made mistakes in life and my parents and especially my grandfather made sure I made things right. I can honestly say I have been blessed to have such loving parents and to have my grandfather as my mentor.

In closing let me say this: As we go through life, remember it is God’s gift to us and let’s make sure we give Him the best we can be.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
