Giving a Gift can Change You!



Is there someone in your life you always seems to rub you the wrong way? Years ago a friend shared three ways to get past the tension and even become a friend to someone you have trouble with.
  1. Pray for them, for God’s blessing and influence.
  2. Do something nice for them.
  3. Give them a gift.  (Even better, do not tell them it is from you.)
There are many verses that speak to these truths;

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”  Romans 12:20  (the burning coals are a gift, a nice thing.)

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you”  Matthew 5:44

 

In stead of avoiding, we engage.

By faith we do the right thing, even if our “feelings” tell us not to and our heart is not in it.

As we invest in people, we begin to value them differently, and only good can come from that.

So take action and see what happens.

Think about it, pray and do something nice.

Bless someone who does not deserve it this week!
