WHAT'S YOUR GIFT?
Okay so you're not a singer or a speaker, neither am I. But, remember
everyone has a gift! As pastors wives, we must be careful not to compare
our gifts with others wishing to be like Sister so and so.
We all have gifts. We all are beautiful in Jesus Christ. We all can
make a difference.
We were not blessed with
children. Some of the most beautiful sights to me are pastors who raised a
godly family. It is such a blessing to see children in their teenage years
serving God faithfully. That is truly an accomplishment in these days and
much of that credit goes to pastors and their wives who make the spiritual well
being of their families a priority.
Some pastors wives are wonderful homemakers. That is not my gift. I
marvel at pastors wives who have the talent to decorate even to the smallest
detail their kitchen tables etc. That is a marvelous gift.
Okay so cooking is not my bag either. The old saying is "the way to a
man's heart is through his stomach." If that is true, then I must
have missed long ago as my poor husband has heartburn and eats tums.
We as pastors wives, sometimes sit around thinking that if only I was like so
and so... Stop, that's negative thinking!
God made you and me just that way we
are. Let's develop and use our gifts to minister to the body of Christ and
be supportive of the ministry God has given to us. (team)
We all don't have to be in the front, we can be used mightily in the ministry of
helps ... This may be old fashioned, but if we can make our husbands look
good, that is an added blessing.
