Who Makes You?

…when Simon saw …the Spirit  was given through the laying on of …hands, he offered them money…  Acts 8:14-25  I remember years ago during the course of an Oprah Winfrey interview with Bernie Mac, while re-hashing some of his life Oprah commented on his appearance and stated, “Bernie Mac, money made you.” Being the comedian that he was, he seemed to laugh it off  and commented about her rise and said, “Money made you too.” Money certainly enables us to make a lot of changes in our lives. Yet, it is the gift given by the Spirit of God (and they both certainly had gifts) and how we use those gifts for God’s glory that enables us to be who God has intended us to be.
