Do Something

Do Something Sermon Illustration

God wants you to do something with the gifts he gives you. Don’t just say thank you and then do nothing! Imagine if you were attending a birthday party for a child you dearly love. You’ve purchased a toy for them, and it is exactly what they wanted; and it requires no batteries or assembly. Now imagine if you give it to them, they open it, and then they set it aside. You see them a week or so later and ask if they are enjoying the toy, and they say no, they haven’t played with it. You’d be puzzled; this isn’t a natural reaction to such a gift! God doesn’t want us to receive His gifts and do nothing with them.
