Daily Inspiration, January 8th

“As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. “ (I Peter 4: 10)

This is what it means to be a true servant of God. It is because of the abundant love and grace and understanding we have received ourselves, that we are not only able to give to others, but that we also have the genuine desire to do so. If we are truly recognizing what divine Love is about—its power, presence, and purpose—we will not hesitate to share this blessing freely.

The mortal mind would try to lure us away from this natural intention, by telling us that we are too poor to be generous, too weak to carry another, too ignorant to be helpful. These lame excuses are pure lies about you and your calling. To focus too much on self and our own needs alone is not only selfish. It lacks healing power. We simply won’t be our most happy and healthy selves until we lose sight of that personal sense, that focus on self, and begin our true stewardship.

This is God’s intention for us. Being a caretaker in His vineyard is not a hardship. It is utilizing a Love that by its use grows, flourishes, and blesses us and all, and it is completely natural to us. Our ministering is not a personal sacrifice. It is gratitude in action.

    That says it all, and so clearly! How we are tempted to be intimidated by suggestions that you mentioned, “not smart enough, not inspired enough, nothing to offer, nothing to give.” Thanks for the wake-up!!
