“Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you have received; freely give”. Matthew 10:8

Can you imagine having the gift of healing, being able to raise the dead, cleansing lepers and casting out demons and then not sharing that gift with people? It wasn’t like they worked to earn it. It was a gift freely given by God.

I don’t possess any of those gifts but there are plenty of other things with which God has blessed me. Some of those things are material (money, possessions, etc.) and some of them are a little less tangible, like peace, comfort, love. Freely God has given me these things. How freely am I sharing them?

Father in Heaven, in the name of Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit I come before You and thank You for the abundant gifts You have provided. Please help me be faithful to freely give others what You have given me. Amen.
