ONE’S SELF… as a Gift. How can that be? One of the greatest gifts that we are in possession of… and absolutely “ours only” to give FREELY… is to share our talents, skill-sets, experience, wisdom, our JOY, and our LOVE, with our fellow man….and thusly… we are SHARING ourselves.
WOW! What a gift to give…. One’s self.
In the process of SHARING… give freely, give it all, and give it wisely…expecting ‘nothing’ in return. Place ‘no conditions’ on this special gift. Give the BEST of what you have… holding ‘nothing back.’ In giving one’s self… we are giving to others… precisely what God gave us. He gave us His only begotten SON.
In Luke 6:38 we are told… Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.”
This is a very plain statement… If I give (sharing my gifts), then something will be given back to me. Again… we see the idea of a draw created in the spirit by giving. If these were the words of men, then the words would not be reliable… however, instead, they are the Words of Jesus Christ… Himself. He also said His words would never pass away. We can bet our life that His words are dependable.
So, it stands to reason then… when giving, or sharing, of ourselves… with others… it is also the very act of … sharing Jesus Christ, who is within us… because our hearts are the Tabernacle of the Holy Spirit. Try sharing yourself… with others… it will open your heart and soul up to greater spiritual opportunities than you could ever imagine.
