What are the beautiful gifts you carry? What are the gifts that when you use them to the fullest most give glory to the Divine?
A while back, I watched part of “Have a Little Faith,” a movie based on Mitch Albom’s book of the same name. In the film, the old Rabbi asked Mitch, ‘What’s Your Glory?’
Here are some definitions of glory:
1. very great praise, honor, or distinction bestowed by common consent; renown: to win glory on the field of battle.
2. something that is a source of honor, fame, or admiration; a distinguished ornament or an object of pride: a sonnet that is one of the glories of English poetry.
3. adoring praise or worshipful thanksgiving: Give glory to God.
4. resplendent beauty or magnificence: the glory of autumn.
5. a state of great splendor, magnificence, or prosperity.
We all have gifts we’re meant to share. And, I believe when we acknowledge and honor these gifts, we are sharing our glory. Sharing that glory lights all of us up, making it easier to see the magnificence we all carry.
Think of how much more joyously our work can be shared when we own these gifts and recognize and beckon them out in others.
