Future tense, will. Not past tense, have shown; not present tense, am showing. But, future tense, WILL.
The world we live in is a scary place, my friends. The hate over politics, ethnicity, cultural differences, skin tones – it doesn’t seem to be getting better. It seems to be getting worse. The news is filled with horrible words, rash judgement, ignorance, and speech designed to fan the flames of hate and further divide the chasm between us.
We all have been given something very special by God, something that He has endowed upon us to use to serve Him, to serve our neighbor, to take care of those who are in need, to encourage others, to teach others — something given to us to use as God needs it used.
Oftentimes, we feel unimportant, plain, boring, less than that person or this person. Not as beautiful, not as delicate, not as smart, not as graceful. Our brains get flooded with less than thoughts that bring us down and make us afraid to use this gift from God because we’re afraid we’re not good enough.
