While stirring around the house on Sunday morning, I received a very uplifting text message from my sister-friend:
How cool is it that the same God who created mountains and oceans and galaxies looked at you and thought the world needed one of you, too.
I replied: I know, right? And that same God knew the world needed you! Have a great day!
It was a great reminder that we all have something to offer to the world and that each of us is God’s gift to the world. Each of us has value and each of us is important.
Wouldn’t it be a wonderful world, if we all saw each other as God’s gift to the world, if we all acknowledged and accepted that each human being was born to make a positive contribution?
Everyone has something special to offer, no matter who they are – female or male, poor or rich, old or young, etc. Each person – whether you consider her/him to be like you or different from you – is God’s gift to the world.
I am grateful to my sister for inspiring me to start each day thanking God for the gift of life that I have been given; to present myself daily as a living gift from God; and to embrace and appreciate each living gift from God whom I encounter daily.
I hope you are encouraged to do the same. After all, how cool is it that the same God who created mountains and oceans and galaxies looked at you and thought the world needed one of you, too?
