SHARING: Pass the rolls please. Not the normal sharing that I refer to, but the sharing I both, refer and prefer…. is the “sharing of ones-self.” It’s not sharing time factor; like fishing with your best friend; or catching a ride to work, the occasional movie….but rather; sharing of one’s “intellect, wisdom; and their skills-sets.
Also, those things that motivates and inspires them; sharing of how to approach those difficult decisions we all encounter from time to time. We could share… by counseling a friend regarding life-changing events …career change…death…divorce, or marriage. Sharing ourselves is the same as the sharing “God’s Special Gifts,” and since we are made in His image…those Gifts would be abundant.
The sharing of our “inner-most being” is an overwhelming gift of Love. Mark 16:15-16 – And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
During this Season of Advent, we could, and should… FOCUS on “sharing” our Love for one another, and equally important, we could give the very special gift of …FORGIVENESS. Forgiving someone is a gift without cost. It is a gift that FREES the mind of clutter, anger, and distress. It not only is good therapy for the person receiving forgiveness, but also the one who is “extending it.”
Remember what Jesus said in Luke 23:34 – But Jesus was saying, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.”
