Before the Sun Sets on This Day

Before the sun sets on each day we should consider what we have given to our world. Have we given our time to a friend, a hand to a coworker, a hug to a child, a smile to a stranger, a warm word to anyone? Have we given our talents to our workplace, our kindness to other people, our energy to a project, our prayers to our God? Have we given our attention to our family, our love to our loved ones, our acceptance to the marginalized? Have we given our loyalty to our faith, our words to our ideas, our freedom to help others? Have we given our wisdom to our children, our understanding to our friends, our sympathy to those who mourn?

God has blessed us with a plethora of gifts; love, kindness, care, concern, sympathy, wisdom, loyalty, ideas, freedom, acceptance, faith, affection, words, abilities, talents, energy, and understanding. Many days we forget how much God has blessed our lives with because we are caught up in our own little “world.” God gave us these gifts so that we could love others the way God loves us daily. We forget; we are human and then God gives us another sunset, and sunrise, a new beginning every day. God allows us to start fresh. Before we can start over we should reflect on what we did and how we want to do it different tomorrow.

Before the sun sets on each day we should reflect on our day and consider what we have given back to others in the world. What about today? What are you going to give?
