You’ve Got Gifts {Heart of Christmas Series}

There is no “one size fits all” in God’s kingdom.

We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. {Romans 12:5-6} Imagine if we all received the exact same sweater for Christmas. Some of us would be really happy. Others might say, “This doesn’t even fit me!”

Fortunately, when God sends gifts He tailor makes them for each one of us. They are part of who He created us to be. For example, you might be a wonderful cook, an excellent musician, or a skilled surgeon. There is no “one size fits all” in God’s kingdom.

As you open gifts this Christmas, remember that God has also chosen gifts for you. Ask Him to reveal those gifts and how you can use them to honor Him as well as bless your brothers and sisters in Christ.

What are some of the gifts God has given you? How can you use those gifts to serve others?
