Today while in prayer, I was reminded that it is our moral obligation (to God and others) to share our gifts.
While it is easy to justify that our gifts are not really a big deal or all that special. The truth is there are people waiting and praying for exactly the gifts you have to share.
Pablo Picasso said it well. The purpose of our life is to find and give away our gifts. So why don’t we?
What keeps us from sharing our gifts?
The biggest reason most of us play smaller than we know we could be is fear. We fear that we are not enough or that we will fail. We don’t share our gift because we fear to be different or ridiculed. But here is an important truth:
:Fear = limitation
Ponder on that for a minute and let it sink in. Fear is costly! Where ever we allow fear we invite limitation. Fear of success, for example, limits your influence, impact, and income.
Belief in Lack
We often feel that we lack knowledge, experience, education or money to share our gift or advance. I have experienced and seen others from all walks of life and income levels experience the belief that they do not have enough. This has taught me that lack begins first as a mindset. Choose instead to believe in abundance no matter what the circumstances may look like. One of my favorite sayings is:
There is no lack in the kingdom!
Having an abundance mindset requires renewing our minds. Madison Avenue and the media is committed to convincing you that you lack. Scripture tells a different story.
For the Lord your God has blessed you in all the work of your hand. He knows your walking through this great wilderness. These forty years the Lord your God has been with you; you have lacked nothing. – Deut. 2:7 AMP
The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack. – Psalm 23:1 AMP

Those of us who live in a democracy are unfamiliar with living in a kingdom. A kingdom is a place ruled by the King. It is the King’s glory and responsibility to provide for his subjects. We serve the King of Kings. We are told the Kingdom is within us. As the temple of the Holy Spirit, we have full access to all of heaven’s resources!
We must renew our minds to focus on abundance. To praise and thank God that he has already given us every possible blessing.
Every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm has already been lavished upon us as a love gift from our wonderful heavenly Father, the Father of our Lord Jesus—all because he sees us wrapped into Christ. This is why we celebrate hima] with all our hearts! – Eph 1:3 TPT
Blessed to be a blessing.
The point of this article is we are blessed to be a blessing. Everyone wins when we share our gifts.
I close with the beautiful prayer found in Psalms 67
God, keep us near your mercy-fountain and bless us!
And when you look down on us, may your face beam with joy!
Pause in his presence
Send us out all over the world so that everyone everywhere
will discover your ways and know who you are
and see your power to save.Let all the nations burst forth with praise;
let everyone everywhere love and enjoy you! – Psalm 67:1-3 TPT
