When Re-Gifting is Admired

I
will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and
you will be a blessing to others.

Genesis 12:2 (NLT)

Every
good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the
heavenly lights.

James 1:17 (NIV)

What
if re-gifting was encouraged and became the norm?

What
if we wanted to be caught re-gifting?

What
if every gift we opened compelled us to search for a person who needs it, not
just the gaudy too-small sweater or the helpful banana peeling gadget, but the
beautiful gifts as well?

What
if every gift was meant to be
re-gifted?

What
if we rewrite the last four sentences replacing ‘gift’ with ‘blessing’?

Imagine
a world in which blessing others was admired and everyone developed their talents
for the benefit of others.

The
Giver of all good and perfect gifts blesses us so that we can bless others. The
gifts aren’t meant to be kept. Re-gifting is the whole idea.

God’s
blessings don’t always arrive ready for re-gifting. Sometimes we need to
combine our blessings and repackage them. Instead of giving us a package of
cookies, God sometimes gives me flour, sugar and butter and gives you eggs and
milk.

God
equips us with everything we need to bless others and it is all meant to be
shared.

God’s gifts are meant to be re-gifted. (tweet this)
