Every being entered into the world with a God-given 


purpose. Each of us is blessed to have a unique set of 


skills and talents, given to us by God.


According to Scripture, God has graciously blessed each 


of us with gifts, talents, and skills that we, as good 


stewards, should employ for the common good of 


humanity. 

Each of us are unique individual personalities 


with a true purpose… a reason for being.

God gives us all special gifts and talents so we can 


live in every respect for Him. May we use our 


God-given abilities to reach those who don't know 


God... and give God the credit for our talents. 

The way we bring glory to God is by using our talent.


"God is glorified when we use our abilities 


to serve others."

 God wants us to use our talents and skills for


 the benefit of others.

 God doesn’t give us anything just for our own


 benefit. After all, we’re blessed to be a blessing. 


Genesis 12:2

We are called to use our gifts to serve others as 


faithful stewards of God’s grace.

God wants us to use our talents 


for Him to bless others and build 


His kingdom.

According to1 Corinthians 12:7-11,


Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is 


given or the common good.  To one there is given 


through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another


 a message of knowledge by means of the same 


Spirit,  to another faith by the same Spirit, to 


another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to 


another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, 


to another distinguishing between spirits, to 


another speaking in different kinds of tongues, 


and to still another the interpretation of tongues. 


All these are the work of one and the same Spirit,


 and God distributes them to each one, just as He 


determines.

When we brush our gifts and talents aside and begin


pursuing things outside of God's will... we are 


basically saying that what God placed within us 


was nothing short of a bad investment.

What are you really good at? 


Writing? Cooking? Motivating? Maybe you’ve 


never met a mechanical problem you couldn’t repair, 


or you’re an amazing mom. Perhaps you just find


 opportunities to help people wherever you go.



Whatever your talent or skill is, guess what? 



God’s behind it! 



But God doesn’t bless us with talents or skills so 


we can become movie stars or earn a ton of cash.



Yes, that can be a result of it. But it’s so much bigger 


than that. God wants us to honor Him with those


 gifts! He wants us to be “good and faithful servants” 


with our talents.

May we all come to know what God 


has called us to be, and become the 


best that we can be at it.

Within each of us lies a 


wellspring of abundance


 and the seeds of opportunity. 


We all have within us...


God-given gifts 



and talents


 waiting to be discovered


and used to glorify God.

May we open the floodgates and allow our soul's 


blueprint to soar and not allow the cemetery to become


 the warehouse for all of our unfulfilled potential!

It’s  important for us to remember that our God-given 


talents may be so natural to us... that we do not


identify it or them as a talent or talents.

Not everyone will be a musician, singer, dancer, 


or athlete. But let's be clear... that doesn’t mean 


that we have been slighted or our talent is less 


important than someone else’s.

Some may really enjoy teaching adults, building, painting, 


nursing, auto mechanics, shoe repair, technology, cooking,


housekeeping, firefighting, organizing, 


listening to and encouraging other people


or landscaping.


Some of these may not sound 


like talents, but they are! 


If we enjoy doing these things and we are good at them,


and we can use them to help and bless God’s people, 


then, it’s a God-given talent!
