Our hands were made by the Maker of the universe. Our hearts are filled with His Spirit because He chose us for this moment in time. We hold our hands before Him and ask, “What has been put in our hearts, what are we to do with these hands?” The answer comes in a single word, “equipping”.
Equipping – (katartismos Greek, Strong’s #2677) A making fit, preparing, training, perfecting, making fully qualified for service.
With every word we speak we can equip, with every action of our hands we can equip by example. The greatest gift to offer in any of this is that of love. Without love all equipping becomes ineffective and insubstantial. Daily we must stand before our Father and ask Him to equip us with the kind of love it will take to make a difference.
