This is so true. Your actions speak louder than words. People will read you before they read the Bible. As we know, gifts are given without repentance. So God has given a gift to everyone. How you use it is your responsibility? You can give your gift back to God for HIM to give you instruction and wisdom in using it, or you can use it how you feel fit, which can be swayed by demonic influence. One of the gifts I would like to speak on, that many overlook and take for granted, is the gift of help. This is a precious gift, and the people who usually have it are compassionate, caring, and very giving. Don’t take these people for granted or abuse them. God will chastise and deal with the hearts of the people who mistreat HIS helpers. They are very special to HIM. Don’t take their kindness for weakness, and don’t feel that they are expected to, or you can control or delegate what your needs are onto them. It doesn’t work that way.
Sometimes we are so busy looking at the “so-called” leadership gifts that we act like helpers supposed to do the tasks that leaders don’t want to do. Leaders sweep floors, clean bathrooms, bake cakes, pass out flyers, manage bulletin boards, fry chicken, drive people around, and take minutes too. Don’t think because you’re a leader, or have a friend that’s a helper, you can delegate the helper with things you don’t want to do. And the people who happen to have this God-given person in their lives, don’t mistreat them or think that just because they are blessing you, that they are not deserving of acknowledgement or a gift of gratitude. These people do good things for others because it’s in them. God has blessed them with a beautiful heart. Appreciate them.
