This is the time of year for Christmas lists…from the youngest family member to the oldest.

During this season. . .we want to share with you seven things better than the new drones, a talking hamster, VR (Virtual Reality Glasses and all sorts of other iToys produced by competing companies.

Here’s my list of the Seven Things Better Than Any iToy.

Practice Creating Opportunities

Written by Harold Herring.

Have you ever said or heard someone say, “I’m just waiting for the right opportunity.”

Before you can ever really have an opportunity you must know where it comes from.

2 Corinthians 2:12 in The Living Bible says:

“Well, when I got as far as the city of Troas, the Lord gave me tremendous opportunities to preach the Gospel.”

God wants us to use all the little opportunities we have. . .RIGHT NOW.

1 Corinthians 7:31 in The Living Bible says:

“Those in frequent contact with the exciting things the world offers should make good use of their opportunities without stopping to enjoy them; for the world in its present form will soon be gone.”

Have you thought about why God gives you opportunities?
