June 11, 2012: To Be or To Have

~ by Mary Galvano

It seems enough is never enough these days. People are not satisfied with what they already have, or what they already are. We are more concerned with having things than being what God has made us. This is a hard thing to accomplish without the help of the Holy Spirit. To Be and not have.

The Creator has made each one of us unique individuals with special gifts. We honor the Father by using these gifts.

It is not enough to look up at the cross and say, “I love you, Lord.”

How do you love Him?

What do you do to show God this?

We show love by what we do. Love is not filled with sentiment or sappy emotions. Love is being all you can be for the other person, especially for God. Be all you can be, nothing more and nothing less. God made us perfect just the way we are, if He wanted us to be more or less than that He would have made it so.

There is so much pressure on young people to be more than what they are and to have more than the next person. They especially need to be taught that it is more important to be only what God has made them and not stress over impressing the other person. They need to be told they are God’s masterpieces. We are all masterpieces because God doesn’t make anything but masterpieces.

Growing up, there was an Amy Grant song that I used to sing to myself that reminded me of this reality. It says that all that I need to be is what God made me. The song is called, ‘All I Ever Have to Be.’ Enjoy!
