During the past few months I have helped several people with real small problems. It always warms my heart when they call to say, “Thank you”. Over the weekend, Reggie called to ask me to set the floats on his BG carb.. When I returned home, he called and thanked me. Church members that I shot photos of and gave them a print, called to say “Thanks”. We invited some friends over for Super Bowl, they sent a thank you note.
The door swings both ways. I often need help from racers, church members, neighbors and my wife. I try to remember to thank them for helping me.
Today, my “Upper Room” daily meditation was about Spiritual Gifts. We all have different gifts and God has given those gifts to us to use to help carry out the things that He wants us to do.
Because we can make choices for ourselves (“free will”), we do not always do what God wants us to do. But is that really true? Many times we go off on a path that we want to follow only to find someone in need of help that only we can provide. Have you heard the gospel song, “Order My Steps”. The words say it all.
In 1 Corinthians 12, we find a good explanation of spiritual gifts. Is everyone able to be a welder? Can all of us do electrical work? Are we all able to frame a house? Can you get up and speak before a small group or a thousand people at a convention? How about finances and bookkeeping? We all have different gifts.
Last week I talked to Mr. Hall Davis, one of the members of the “Nubian Kruzers United” motorcycle club of Baton Rouge. I told Hall how much I just love the work that these men are doing in the Baton Rouge community. Keep up the good work!
The Kruzers are a fine example of, diversity, use of spiritual gifts and doing Gods work. The members are from all walks of life and they use their talents to serve the organization and the community. The just happen to ride motorcycles. “Thank You”!
