Now Hear This -- We've Been Blessed With SO MANY GIFTS


Ever consider all the GIFTs we've received from our incredible and loving God???  


Check out this video to the left depicting a wonder of God's creation  -- our precious hearing -- which, frankly, may be just one example of all the GIFTS given us by God that  we may be taking for granted.  

Scripture Art

GIFT has rendered key Scripture verses in moving and memorable artwork.  GIFT artwork can be used in a personal reflection to help us live and love more like Christ, or it can support a Bible study.  GIFT artwork has been used by a variety of Churches and Ministries.  One Catholic Church used GIFT Scripture art to reinforce a Sunday Mass reading and bring that reading into the community via GIFT yard signs, bulletin board posters and notecards,  The artwork  is available as individual Scripture messages or as a book.

REFLECTIONS ON TWO PILLARS OF OUR FAITH -- GIFT AND TRANSFORMATION



Click here to read mu

ltiple Church teachings explain how fully appreciating God’s “GIFTs” can lead to “TRANSFORMATIONs”


Multiple Church teachings advocate our need to fully appreciate all the wonderous GIFTs God has blessed us with (life itself, all we need to survive, love, joy, family, our faith, our Church, Christ’s real presence in our lives); and then in humble appreciation of all God’s loving provisions, to allow ourselves to be TRANSFORMED to conform to God’s self-less and loving character, perfect plan and will for our lives; and then to go forth to TRANSFORM the world in holy, humble, Christ-like charity. 

Please consider these two foundational faith pillars:


1) Everything's A GIFT -- from our awesome Creator, Father, Provider and Savior


2) We should acknowledge and live appreciative of all the GIFTs we have received from our God, seek His will for our lives, allow Him to  TRANSFORM our lives so we live in accordance to HIs will, and work to TRANSFORM the world as an instrument of His love.


This linked document covers many of the references to GIFT and TRANSFORMATION as two foundational and interrelated faith pillars which are repeatedly expressed throughout Church Teaching. The recurring nature of these messages affirms their combined merit as concise, fundamental guidance for our lives.  The recurring references to GIFT and TRANSFORMATION would also suggest that more direct conveyance of these two interrelated, foundational and faith-enriching concepts might be beneficial and warranted. 


Consider that all we have, need to live and enjoy has been provided to us by God. Given all these amazing GIFTs, should we not seek to reciprocate to God, to seek to know Him more fully, and to consider allowing Him to TRANSFORM our lives so we will live and love like Him, and even to be willing to be used by Him to TRANSFORM the world.
