Bible Blessings® offers tips for Quality Christian Gifts of Kindness May 01 2014

Bible Blessings your quality Christian Gifts and productsBible Blessings® Quality Christian Gifts wonders if it sometimes seems like we have lost our sense of civility. Quality Christian gifts come in various forms and sometimes all it takes is showing the gifts of kindness to bring back quality to our lives and relationships.

Grow a garden of kindness

All too often these days, and thanks in large part to social media, people can connect with millions of other people and make disparaging remarks with little to no thought. While it is easy to make mean and hateful remarks, what purpose does it serve?

Instead of spreading mean and unkind thoughts, why not use your Christian gifts to grow a quality garden of genuine kindness? Here are some suggestions:

Treat others as you would like to be treated: this goes for both online and offline interactions with others. 

Forgive one another: why carry around a grudge? The only purpose of staying angry at someone for a past argument or negative action towards you is to continue to take up negative energy. 

Love one another: you’ll be amazed at how much lighter you will feel, and happier, too, when you choose to love other human beings instead of disliking them. And you’ll be surprised at how the love you share will be paid forward to others.

Be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry: it is the wise person who listens before speaking. Truly hear what the other person is saying before assuming to know the person’s intentions.

Go forth, then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, with hearts filled with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness and patience, bearing with one another and, if you have a complaint against another, forgive that person; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Most importantly, always seek to give your love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.

Bible Blessings® knows true leaders’ of quality Christian gifts pay it forward April 15 2014

True leaders pay it forward

 

Bible Blessings® knows it’s become increasingly common to be cynical about the quality Christian gifts of leaders who profess a purpose beyond profit and a desire to take better care of their employees, congregations and communities. The next generation, known as millennials, wants to know that leaders are genuine in their commitment to providing quality Christian gifts to society.

Where are the genuine leaders?

Knowing whether or not leaders are sincere and selfless in offering quality  gifts should not be difficult to determine nor provide.  At the most practical level, people want to know how leaders are giving back to communities and employees. People want to work at companies that care about the bigger picture and not just the bottom line. They want to see a purpose beyond profit.

A 2012 survey of 60,000 employees at 50 companies around the world, conducted by the consulting firm Towers Watson, found that organizations that invested most in the sustainability of their employees generated nearly three times the operating margins of those who invested the least.

Leaders who understand the importance of giving back or “paying it forward” understand that doing so is a form of enlightened self-interest. When companies invest in better meeting the needs of their employees and their communities, the results show up at the bottom line.

Fueled by a growing socially-conscious attitude of the millennial generation, higher consciousness simply means the capacity to be conscious of more and to exclude less. This form of conscious capitalism recognizes a wider world and a more community-focused world view. Conscious leaders have the courage and the vision to see that we’re all in this together and that extending our circle of care ultimately pays the highest dividend.

Bible Blessings® Offers Christian gifts to take the shield of faith April 08 2014

Bible Blessings Christian Gifts Family Christian Stores

 

Bible Blessings® knows Christian gifts are more than luxurious fashion accessories that represent your faith. Christian gifts in other forms allow you to overcome many obstacles in life.

Taking the shield of faith

In Ephesians, we read “In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one” 6:16. If you remember during Roman times, a Roman soldier's shield protected him from head to toe.

It was made of iron, upholstered in thick layers of fabric, and saturated in water when going to battle.

Consequently, the flaming arrows of the enemy fizzled on contact. Getting the idea? When you take up the shield of faith,  you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

The gifts of a pure heart

Satan can't penetrate a heart that's pure, saturated in Scripture and fortified by faith. That's why Jesus told Peter that because he prayed for him, his faith would not fail. It's your faith that's under attack.

It's your faith that needs to be fed and nurtured. It's your faith that sustains you in life's battles! Jesus told us to have faith in God. He didn't just say, "Have faith in something bigger than yourself." No, He said, "Have faith in God."

Claim your gifts

If you're under attack today claim this promise that God gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might, He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They will run and not be weary, and they will walk and not faint.

God gives each of us a measure of faith. But you must develop it by building yourself up on your most holy faith. Faith under attack is faith under construction. It's in the battles of life that you discover whether you have nurtured faith or neglected faith!

Yours in Faith, Bible Blessings® Team  www.bible-blessings.comBible Blessings® Christian Gifts wants to share the gifts of spiritual blessings anyone can experience when he or she commits to living a faithful life. Bible Blessings® offers four examples of gifts given to any and every Christian who will take a moment to recognize the practical benefits of knowing God.

Experience the Gifts of Christianity        

They’re not hard to find. You merely have to open your heart and mind and accept the graciousness of God’s gifts. Consider these four:

  1. Blessing - The more you know God and obey His will, the more you'll experience His blessings. “If you obey all the decrees and commands I am giving you today, all will be well with you and your children” (Deuteronomy 4:40).
  2. Peace – “Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God” (2 Peter 1:2). The more you know God, the more inner peace you will have. Yes, struggles and setbacks will come, but even then you'll have a sense of well-being because you'll feel His nearness.
  3. Wisdom - Paul prayed that God would give the Ephesians “a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him” (Ephesians 1:17 NAS). Wisdom is seeing things the right way. Revelation is when God bypasses the limitations of your mind and shows you things you otherwise wouldn't know. You can walk each day in a “spirit of wisdom and of revelation.”
  4. Freedom – “When you did not know God, you were slaves to those which by nature are no gods” (Galatians 4:8). Without the confidence that comes from knowing God, and your standing before Him, you become a slave to circumstances, emotions or other people's opinions. Refuse to live that way. Instead, get to know God better.

There is no replacement for the spiritual benefits you receive as a follower of Christ. No amount of material objects can provide the uplifting, nurturing and unconditional love that you get when you commit to a life of Christianity.

Take time to reflect upon the many wonders and benefits that you experience every day. Reflect upon and give thanks for God’s unconditional love and blessings to all Christians.

What Henry Ford teaches us about Christian Gifts March 20 2014

Bible Blessings Christian Gifts

 

Bible Blessings® Christian Gifts knows the importance of fulfilling our jobs, or duties, here on earth. The automotive pioneer Henry Ford exemplified what it means to appreciate all Christian gifts presented to us – even cardboard boxes.

Thinking Outside the Box

“Do not be like them, for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask Him.” Matthew 6:8

An American industrialist who founded the Ford Motor Company, Henry Ford championed the idea of producing quality automobiles priced right for the middle class. And, Ford was always thinking out of the box – literally and figuratively.

In one instance, Henry Ford asked some engineers to box the transmissions for his Model-T Fords in certain sized boxes. He gave meticulous dimensions and material instructions for these boxes. The builders were confused, but they did as they were told.

When the transmissions were delivered, the factory workers took apart the boxes and used them for the floorboards. How’s that for thinking out of the box?  

To Believe is to Understand

That’s what God does. He knows what we need even before we ask Him and he provides those gifts to us. We may not understand all of His ways, just like the workers who were boxing up the transmissions did not understand. We do not live by our understanding; we live by His promises.

Is there something happening in your life right now that you don’t understand? Remember this verse from Proverbs - Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight - 3:5-6.

Bible Blessings® Christian Gifts Ring True with Millennials March 04 2014

Bible Blessings Christian Gifts

Bible Blessings® Christian Gifts wants to know, if you’re part of the millennial generation (born in the early 1980s to mid-1990s), what message do you want to send to people to convey who you are and what you value? How do you share your Christian gifts in a world that sometimes seems hostile towards Christianity?

 

How Millennials View Religion

In an article published in just the last few years, a young author lamented the fact that she felt she had to hide her religious beliefs from some of her friends. Unfortunately, the young woman is not alone when it comes to her beliefs. A recent study revealed some interesting statistics about millennials’ attitudes regarding religion:

  • 6 out of 10 millennials dropped out of church at some point
  • 49% choose a church because they enjoy the preaching and teaching
  • 63% would leave a church because they disagree with the teaching
  • Only 1 in 10 attend church because they feel a need to be a part of community

 

How Millennials View Their Role in Society

Conversely, a Gallup poll found that today’s young people tend to be more traditional in both lifestyle and values than their parents. Today’s young people are far less likely to engage in unhealthy habits such as smoking and drinking alcohol. They also are more likely to wait to have sex until they get married.

 

How Millennials Share Their Gifts

The millennial generation tends to feel a deeper sense of social responsibility. They want to not only engage in volunteer activities, but also want to purchase products and services from companies that practice corporate responsibility – both for the environment and for their communities. Millennials share their spiritual gifts through their purchases and through their pay it forward lifestyle. Today’s millennial appears destined to make a strong impact on religion and spirituality in the decades ahead.

How to use Christian gifts to live a life of good deeds February 25 2014

Christian Gifts

Aside from the Christian gifts we receive through our faith and beliefs, does it sometimes seem difficult to stay positive, focused and keep that faith? Along with patience, forgiveness and tolerance, we are given many more Christian gifts that we can use to make a difference every day.

 

One person can’t help everyone

Exploring how you can make a difference can sometimes feel overwhelming. It’s much easier to throw up your hands and give up. You are not the only who has ever felt that way. There are many examples throughout history of one person doing extraordinary things with the gifts bestowed upon them by God. Noah, Moses and even David represent simple Christians who performed extraordinary jobs because of their faith and courage.

 

The fact of the matter is, you have lots to give

Anyone can look at the examples in the Bible and either get frustrated or get inspired to tackle a problem using the strength, courage and all talents given to him or her by God. Sure, you can argue that you have too much going on in your life to get involved. There are only 24 hours in the day, right?

The bottom line is this: how you live is much more important than what you think you can contribute. It’s knowing how and when to share your faith and spirituality. Once you look outside yourself, you get a sense of the broader world and get a sense of where you can make a difference, big or small.  Remember the words of Matthew-

You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Mathew 5:14-16

 

Everyone can help someone

You have the opportunity to let God’s goodness shine through you. How do you do this? By using your gifts and living a life characterized by good deeds. Resist the temptation to simply do nothing because the task is too big and you are just one person. Remember you are one of God’s gifts and you have been called to share your extraordinary talents.
