TRUE or FALSE: "Who you are is God's gift to you. Who you become is your gift to God."
To some extent, yes!
A man receives nothing except it be given to him form above. This being the case, all good gifts from from the Father of Light. From the beginning of creation His purpose s that we increase, multiply, replenish and subdue the earth. For those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, we are reminded that as part of the new creation , that we are His workmanship in Christ Jesus and god's purpose from the beginning is that we do good work in this life.
It seemed okay to presume that all that we are proceed from him, but we need to fan the gift of God in our lives so as to become the person He want us to be.
In a nutshell, we know who gave us the gift and use it back to the honour and praise of His Name.
Well, this is my thought. I hope you're okay with it.
Thinking of God's creations and our contributions and giving back to God, I remembered a "discourse" that was posted in the comment section on the YouTube under a Salsa Dance clip -- a priceless example of meanness and creativity.
One invaluable God's creation tells another apparently less valuable creation (the value is assigned arbitrarily as you can see below):
"Following your line of thinking, Spanish is actually a retarded deformation of Latin and Arabic.
Notwithstanding the? fact that you are unaware of the definition of the words:
the fact remains that you are neither intelligent, nor insightful, nor useful as a human being. I hereby order you, in the name of the survival of the species, to cease existing immediately."
I wonder how God views these "gifts"?
From a religious point of view it makes perfect sense, and roughly translated it s a good way to follow your life. Doing your best with your life is a true thank you for the life you have received, while wasting your life can be considered disrespectful to the proviledge of being alive.
I don't believe in God. But what I do believe in is the Universe. One might argue that, that is the same as God, just a different name for it.
I believe we live for our own sakes. We live so our souls can develop, mature and we can learn from our many experiences on earth. I believe that over time we become wiser and it is all part of one long life, which I hope never ends, because I enjoy and love living so very much.

Do we ever lose God's gift?Recently I was watching a show on television in which one of the character stated that his father was a homosexual preacher. Immediately, my curiosity was peaked. If God blesses people with the gift of preaching/ teaching His Word, can that gift be lost because of our...

Do you think the Holy Bible is one of God's greatest gifts?I have given this question a lot of thought lately. I've wondered where would we be right now if it did not exist. How would we even know God of the Bible? Or for that matther our Lord Jesus Christ. Is the fact that it exist a miracle?

I don't think any of us were supposed to know what Gods plan is. Cause if we did, we would find a way to mess it up. I think that "IF" God told me what the plan was, He would swear me to secret icy.
