Unwrap the Gift Inside Your Loved Ones
by Sheri Rose Shepherd

We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith. — Romans 12:6

I've learned that if there are two of us that are exactly alike and we agree on everything, then there's only need for one of us!

The Bible says "as iron sharpens iron so let one man sharpen another" (Proverbs 27:17) and we're told in Romans that we all have different gifts. The greatest gift you could give yourself and those you love this Christmas season is to help those you love unwrap their God-given gift. That they would feel loved and accepted for the way God wired them from the beginning.

If you're ready to gain understanding of what is inside those you love and want some insight on how to help them to open their God-given gifts, then take a few moments and watch this week's video.

God's Letter to You

I believe if The Lord was going to write you a personal letter about battles this life brings it may read like this....

My Child,

I have gifted you with a special talent, something only you can do and something only you can use. You may not see what it is or value what it’s worth, but I have created you to use it for the purpose of carving a mark of faith on the hearts of those you love. You can decide to bury this talent. If you do, no one will ever see it and you will miss the purpose of your life. Or you can use the talent to bring attention to yourself, and no lives will ever be changed by what you do. Instead, I ask you to dedicate all that you are and all that you are equipped to do to Me so I can multiply every good and perfect gift I have placed inside of you. The talent I have given you is of value only if it spent on others for My glory, not yours.

Your God, the Gift-giver
