Have you ever wondered why some people, even members of our family act a certain way all or most of the time and have certain good behaviors without even thinking about it?
Did you know that you and I are born with innate gifts given to us by the grace of God? Let’s look at what Romans 12:6-8 (NLT) says:
“6 In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing
certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy,
speak out with as much faith as God has given you.
7 If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are
a teacher, teach well. 8 If your gift is to encourage others, be
encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has
given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And
if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.”
WOW, isn’t that awesome? Well, now we have an idea why they can’t help themselves; they are born with those gifts/talents and are acting accordingly.
Now, did you know that in Matthew 5:9 it says, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God?” Would you like to be bless and be call a son of God?
Today, put your talents to use as a peacemaker to work together with those of different opinions. When you sow seeds of peace, you are doing God’s work on earth, and you will reap a harvest of goodness.
