For those of you who know what love languages are, mine is gifts. Giving and Receiving. Seems a little bit greedy to those of you who are not gift lovers I am sure. But give me a big ol’ box wrapped up pretty any day over an act of service or a word of encouragement. Turns out, God likes gifts too.
I have been reading in Ephesians with the community of woman from She Reads Truth. In chapter one, Paul refers to a few gifts we have been given as believers; hope, a rich inheritance, and immeasurably great power. Wow. Christ has given us the gift of freedom from sin and shame by dying on the cross. These gifts are a BIG deal.
The verse above also is a promise from God that he won’t change. He isn’t going to decide one day that he is going to take away those eternal gifts.
Along with eternal gifts, I think God is gracious enough to give us earthly ones too. Here are some of my favorite gifts. Go find Joy in your gifts today. 🙂
