I was just thinking about how responsibility plays such a big role in our lives. From the time we are small, we are responsible for something. As we grow, the responsibility grows. Remember that Jesus tells us that of those who are given much, much is required. On Friday, I was reminded about the responsibility that encompasses my life. I do believe that each person who comes across my path has been given to me. God gives me this great gift of friendship, acquaintance, connection or encouragement. Through this gift, I then must respond. I can choose to reject the person and their gift to me or I can accept the gift and cherish it. I choose to cherish the people who are placed in my path. Do you? What does it look like? For me, I feel a responsibility to use the gifts I have been given to touch the lives of those in my path. I pray that you might find a way to see people through the eyes of God this week and look at how you might be a gift to them. Because you are a gift. You are a gift to me. I cherish and treasure you.
