Gift of giving

Act 25: One Way

The most profound gifts are gifts without any expectation of a future return. Each of us has a toolkit of gifts that are pretty specific to us – and, needed by someone else, who couldn’t repay like for like. It could be financial. It could be a particular talent that’s unique to you. Use it and give it away to someone who can’t repay it. 

 Choose how you’ll complete today’s act:
Green:
Know what somebody needs but can’t get a hold of themselves? Maybe they’re an older person, or less mobile. Go out of your way to help get it.

Amber:
Know someone who needs a listening ear, some advice, comfort? Give them the gift of something they couldn’t give themselves.

Red:
Know an in-demand skill that could help someone? Even if it’s something you’d usually be paid for – DIY skills, building, or cooking up a feast? Give it away for free.

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
(1 Peter 4:10 NIV)
