I was talking to my teenage son this week about having his mind open to new opportunities, to try new things, to choose a career path that used his gifts rather than a job that just presents itself.

I remember thinking that opportunities are gifts that should not be wasted.

This morning, I was thinking about what I would post and decided to challenge my understanding of the word “opportunity”. So I looked up the definition of “opportunity” and discovered that it’s not a gift that someone can decide to give or not give – but, in my opinion- opportunity is a right.

God gave man dominion over the earth, not over man. Everyone one of us is God’s creation to live out the way He plans, not by man’s designs or preferences.

God is not a respecter of persons (prefers one over the other) and we shouldn’t be either nor should we accept less in our own lives.

Something to think about and consciously choose to practice and change.
