The Gift

Gift series part 1
We all have a gift. I don't know what yours is but you do have one. 2 Chronicles 21:3 Their father gave them great gifts of silver and gold and precious things, with fortified cities in Judah; but he gave the kingdom to Jehoram, because he was the firstborn. Are father has given us a gift as well. Is your gift a silver gift, or a gold gift? He gave it to you for a reason and it is up to you what you do with it. A gift is something you get for free and you can use it to the best of your abilities.
Today I have been blessed with a wonderful gift. In the previous post “RESPECT” I mentioned Katie Ong. Today I have become friends with her and I hope it will be a long and prosperous friendship. The Lord can give a gift from anywhere at any time and I thank him for all the wonderful gifts he has given me. He has blessed me with many friends that have helped me in my spiritual walk and I am grateful for all of them. Friendship is one of the greatest gifts that can be given and I hope I can give this gift as well as I have received it.
Another gift that we receive is our life! Talk about a gift! Life is….. so wonderful yet so awful. I have had times in my life where I was on top of the world (or so it seemed) and I have had times where I just wanted to end it all. The only thing that stopped me was the fact that my life isn’t mine to take. It is a gift from God and for that I am eternally grateful.
And so ends part 1 of my gift series. May God bless you in all your efforts.

Interesting post, Josh. We receive gifts every day even though we don't always know it. We need to thank God every day for all the gifts He has given us. And I definitely agree with you. Life is the best gift we could ever receive!
