Note 004: Why Do We Have Gifts?

The simple answer is: to build community

That’s right, God gives us each different gifts so that we have to come together and rely upon each other in communities and marketplaces.  Each of us is created to meet a particular need that exists around us.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.  (1 Peter 4:10)

Note 003: Implement!

 I regularly have a chance to observe winners, finishers, and prolific writers.  The common thread I observe between them is that they implement! 

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO IMPLEMENT? 

Implementation is taking in information or processing new ideas and then acting on them.    Dictionary.com defines the verb to implement as “to put (a decision, plan, agreement, etc.) into effect.”  It also gives as synonyms, the words execute, apply, perform, and enact.
