Greatest gift

Dear brothers and sisters,

In the Bible, Jesus tells the story about three servants who are given bags of gold so that they can grow their master’s wealth. Two servants do well when they work hard to double their bags of gold. One, however, does a bad job when he simply hides his bag and gains nothing. (The parable of the bags of gold – Matthew 25:14-30).

The parable talks about gifts God gives us. God gives us many kinds of gifts, such as beauty, wealth, health, talent, smartness, diligence, wisdom… God gives us all these great things because God wants us to be managers for God – God gives us beauty, money, intelligence…. so that we can manage them to bear fruit for God. This is good for us, not for God.

So if we work heartily, and after the toiling days, we’ll be able to whisper to God in joy that: “You delivered to me five gifts, here I have made five gifts more. I bore much fruit for you.”

However, what is the greatest gift in countless gifts that God gives us? What is the most precious gift that God gives us to bear fruit?

Let’s think.

It’s the breath of God, the Holy Spirit of God. “Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” (Genesis 1:7).

The Holy Spirit of God is the greatest gift God gives us to bear fruit. “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” (Galatians 5:22-23).

Bear much the fruit of the Spirit. Be faithful managers for God.

Have a faith day.
