Have you ever lost the ability to do something because of the lack of using it, maybe a talent or a skill?
James 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”
We should thank God for all He’s given us. Our talent can be our special personality, our ability to give kind words, musical ability, determination in life, giving, wisdom, compassion, preaching, teaching skills, communication skills, or anything we’re good at.
1Peter 4:10 “Each one, as a good manager of God’s different gifts, must use for the good of others the special gift he has received from God.”
Leo Buscaglia said; ‘Your talent is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.’
God created us and blessed us with special gifts and abilities for a reason; not to let them lay dormant gathering dust. Use it or lose it, the saying goes. One of the saddest things in life is a wasted talent.
We should be wise and put them into use to help others, so that the giver of gifts may be glorified.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you that we are uniquely made, with special talents and abilities, gifted to us. Please help us to be good stewards of those things you’ve given us, and always to give you all the honor and praise. Would you continue to protect us and our families during these times of uncertainty? In Jesus name I pray, Amen
