How much good gift could a good god give if a good god could give good gifts?
Try saying that once. Just once. I think it tangles the brain and the tongue, and if you're Italian, fingers and arms and hands.
The bible answers this question.
No eye has seen
Nor ear heard
Nor the heart of man conceived
What God has prepared for those who love Him.
So the answer to the tongue tie-r is A LOT. And the price is great! It's FREE!
The upkeep however will keep us on our toes. As a Christian, the upkeep is striving day after day hour after hour minute by minute to walk in the shoes of our Savior, Christ Jesus. I know and you know that we're imperfect. Not just imperfect, nowhere near perfect. Accepting Christ and following Christ are perhaps the two hardest things that anyone can be asked to do. There is however, a wonderful heart-lightening "catch". We don't have to be perfect, just attempt with our hearts and minds and actions. We are asked to shed light on the world. So, today, and everyday after asking Christ into our hearts, do that, show your light unto your fellow man. Strive to show a pleasant attitude to everyone, especially those we find tiresome or "annoying". In walking in Christ's footsteps, and allowing Him to guide us and at times carry us, we will shine upon every face we meet and thereby spread the love of Christ. That is what being a Christian is. Go forth, do it, and see if it shines back at you. I'll try.
Lord, today, allow us to bask in your glory, your Grace, and help us to shine with that Grace and glorify your name unto our communities, whether they be small or large. Allow our light to bring Jesus, Your Son, to others who haven't accepted Him. Thank you for the blessings we have received and the gifts that we are promised in the future. Because Your gifts are awesome, and our spirits are weak, thank You for giving Your Son as a mediator to You. In Christ's name we pray, Amen.
