After traveling, I often return to the raspberries to harvest the too-ripe berries. Sometimes, they have already over-ripened and rotted there. I always feel the same way about it: Sometimes, if you don’t put a good thing to good use, it rots on the vine. Our gifts are made for using, for being picked and enjoyed. If we’re holding some gift in, some talent, some dream, some project, some way of serving, we might consider stepping out and blessing others now and not waiting.
