A Quote For The Day

I have experienced what I call “God moments” when I know I need to do something but can’t put my finger on why, but I also think it’s important to be observant, think critically, and cultivate my talents and skills in God’s service. I also know that it’s important to use discernment and ask for guidance when I’m not sure. In general, though, I think God has given me enough innate intelligence to find small ways to serve without having to be led around by the nose. The idea that we need to be “nudged” by the Holy Spirit in every little interaction is just silly. Intelligence may not be listed as a gift of the Spirit in the Bible, but it IS a gift from God that we can use to decide whether we should take ten minutes to carry someone’s groceries for them.
