Calvin Coolidge said, ”No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.” You’ll hear from four people who have learned about the gift of giving. They share their lives with others. Hip-hop artist Lecrae, professional surfer and shark attack survivor Bethany Hamilton, Shane Kampe and a high security inmate in one of Hawaii’s correctional facilities.
Reflections for Life Enrichment
– We all feel like misfits sometimes. But, God has created us with special gifts, talents and passions. If we dedicate them to him, he will show us a place and group where we belong, where we feel at home. In that place, we will be positioned to make the greatest impact and experience our deepest fulfillment.
– The Lord keeps us from great sorrows when we step out in faith for him. Life is fluid. Time moves on and so should we. We can take the circumstance we are in and make the most of it. When we acknowledge God’s presence in our situation he turns our attempts to “make the most of it” even more!
Matthew 11:28-30: Jesus says, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
