A gift is any material given voluntarily for the purpose of thanksgiving (Numbers 18:11), sacrifice (Matthew 5:23), a dowry (Genesis 34:12). These essence of gifts tells us how gifts are of importance and valuable to God. People do not give out anything (gifts) that have no value, everyone gives an item of value and importance.
Just think about this, why am I telling you that you are a gift to the world?
Beloved,Genesis 1:26-27 says “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he themthem”.(KJV) This proves the fact that God Himself specially molded you and breath into you the breath His Spirit that caused you to be a living being, making you valuable. Beloved, God didn’t just stop there but He gave you out to the world to take dominion over the fish of the sea, birds of the air and cattle and all other life stock and beast of the world. I want you to realize this day that, this is what makes you that gift- a valuable one
Without you the world (your home, school, community and nation) would not see the Glory of God. There are many people who walk about thinking in their minds that they are worth nothing, they are only cursed and that they cannot contain anything valuable but this day I want to boldly let you know that you are a gift to the world.
To sum it up Matthew 5:13-16 tells us that we children of God are the salt of the earth and the light of the world. We all know that both salt and light is part of the basic elements that makes our stay on earth possible. Without light there is no vision and without salt there is no taste or flavor.
In the same vain, God has parceled you as a gift to the world to help others see the glory of Him and to also cause the lives of other to be a tasteful one filled with the love of God through His son Jesus Christ.
Dear Child of God, the whole world is looking up to you to arise and shine out what God has deposited in you.
Never think that you are worthless. You are very special and a wonderful gift to the world.
