Inside every person is a hidden gift that God has deposited for the benefit of others.
Written By Benjamin Dankaka
Jesus once said, “For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought to the open”. What Christ said is exactly what senders of mails do. The senders of mails hide their message inside an envelope and like Jesus said, the hidden message is meant to be disclosed. Whatever they concealed inside the envelope is not intended to remain hidden, but similar to what Jesus said, it is to be brought to the open. Now Jesus was in fact speaking about the messages He had been putting inside His disciples.
Jesus wanted His disciples know it was their job to bring out the messages in their hearts. Just as the sender of the message in an envelope expects the receiver to expose the hidden message, Jesus expects us to unravel and make use of the messages He has hidden in our hearts. The message that has been hidden in us is His word. It is also the natural abilities He has endowed us with. Inside every person is a hidden gift that God has deposited for the benefit of others. What are you doing with what you have received from God?
Prayer: Lord, thank you for the gift you placed inside of me. Amen.
