"Everyone no matter how rich has a need...."

“Everyone no matter how rich has a need.
Everyone no matter how poor has a gift.
That is why we build and celebrate community.”

Recently I had the opportunity to be with a group of people who desire to love God and their neighbor more. During our time together we asked 3 questions: What is a gift of your hands -what are you good at? What is a gift of your head - what do you have knowledge about? What is a gift of your heart-what are you passionate about?
It was beautiful to see what happened. Within 20 minutes our small group of 25 discovered over 90 gifts and passions….
Some of their gifts of their hands were: art, organizing, wood work, construction, gardening, cooking, painting, decorating, floral design, plumping, home repair, athletics….
Some of their gifts of the heads were: teaching, writing, survival techniques, how to tile, computers, book keeping, organization, animal care, literature, parenting…..
They are passionate about literacy, God’s Word, teens, children, giving hugs, broken hearted, people who have less than them, music, accepting people where they are, service, justice, employment opportunities, clean environment, disabilities….
At the end we had this wonderful tapestry of gifts and passions as we talked about what could happen if we exchanged those gifts more often.
LifeLine CDC has a saying “Everyone no matter how rich has a need. Everyone no matter how poor has a gift. That is why we build and celebrate community.”
What are the gifts and passions that you have that you could share with others?
