This morning in our K-5 chapel, Mark DeNooy delivered a wonderful, humorous and engaging message about using the tools we are given by God. He used the analogy of power tools and how each power tool is invented and designed to serve a purpose, to perform a task. A hammer hammers nails, a screwdriver drives screws and a hair dryer dries hair. The key to his message was when power tools are asked to perform a given task, the tool does not respond, “I think I am going to take today off and not perform the task I was designed to perform.” When called upon, the tool performs the task it was designed to do. As it is with us, when God calls us each day to use our tools, our gifts and our talents to perform a task, our response cannot be, “I think I am going to take today off and not perform the task I was designed to perform.” As it says in 2 Corinthians 9:7, “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” My prayer, for each one of us, is when God gives us an opportunity to use our gifts to be gifts to others, we will seize the moment. May we all see an opportunity to “reGIFTit” today.
