A Gift

Once upon of time there was a girl and God gave that little girl a violin and she enjoyed that violin and played very well.  When she got older, God came to her and said "Remember I gave you a violin, won't you play it for me?"  The girl said "I don't feel like playing it, plus it's not that important to anybody.".

On night the same young woman was sitting on the couch and she heard a tune in her head.  She thought "Maybe I should get up and write down the notes to this tune" Then she said "No, I don't feel like it and it's not that important to anyone."

On another night, the same young woman had a particular feeling of joy in her heart and she wanted to express it in music but she thought to herself "No, I don't feel like it plus it's not that important to anyone".  Then God said to her "It's important to me.  I want to hear it.  Would I have given you this wonderful gift of being able to play the violin, if I didn't want to hear it."

God has given gifts to us.  Not all gifts are public gifts that are going to be broadcast all over the world, some are very private gifts, meant for the communing of you and Lord.  I think those of us who are not in the public eye can tend to make light of the gifts that God has given us.  Maybe we shouldn't do that.
