COLOURS OF LIFE

BY GRACE C. ESPIRITUSANTO

“If you give what you do not need, it isn’t giving.” — Mother Theresa

Our best self can always be shown when we use our talents and skills for the welfare of many, known or unknown to us. It would be a waste of God given gifts if we keep them only for ourselves or our own selfish motives. Sharing our gifts with others especially in times of their needs; during disasters or calamities, whether man-made or natural is the best that we can do them and for ourselves.

This is something we have to teach our children to use and develop their talents and skills to be able to make other people’s lives more bearable, happy and worth living. All of us can a lot of things with our gifts;  teaching, doing the laundry, dancing, caring for the elders, walking the dogs, taking care of the sick or simply be there to give a hug or a pat on their shoulders or just to accompany them.

Remember that when we use our best self for God’s glory, we are more blessed.

And don’t ever forget to thank HIM for your gifts.

“The greatest gift we could bestow on others is a good example.” — Thomas Morrel
