Every being came into the world with a purpose 


from God. God has gifted us all with a distinct


 set of abilities and talents.

According to Scripture, God has graciously gifted 

us all with gifts, talents, and skills that we should 

use for the common good of humanity as good 

stewards.

Each of us is a unique individual 


with a meaningful purpose... 


a reason for being.

God bestows distinct gifts and talents on each of us 


so that we can live in awe of Him. May we use our 


God-given talents to reach out to people who do not


 know God... and give God the glory for our ability.

We bring God glory by utilizing our abilities. 


"When we use our gifts to serve others, 


God is glorified."

 God desires that we use our abilities and 


skills to serve and benefit others.

 God doesn’t give us anything just for our own


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


Genesis 12:2

As faithful stewards of God's generosity, we are 


called to use our gifts to serve others.

God desires that we use our gifts 


to bless others and build His 


kingdom.


According to 1 Corinthians 12:7-11, the 


manifestation of the Spirit or the common 


good is given to each one. To one is given a


message of wisdom through the Spirit, to 


another a message of knowledge through the


 same Spirit, to another faith by the same 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 of these are the work of the same Spirit, and 


God distributes them to each one as He sees fit.

When we dismiss our abilities and talents and begin

pursuing things outside of God's purpose, we are

essentially saying that what God placed within us 

was a terrible idea.

What are your true talents? 


Writing? Cooking? Motivating? 


Perhaps you've never encountered a mechanical


 problem you couldn't fix, or you're a fantastic 


mother. Perhaps you just look for ways to help


 people wherever you go.



Guess what? 


Whatever your gift or skill is...


God is behind it... 


God is at work!



But God does not bless us with abilities or skills 


so that we might become movie stars or make a lot


 of money. Yes, that may be a result. But it's much


 more than that. God desires that we glorify Him 


with those gifts! He desires that we use our abilities


 to be "good and faithful servants."

May we all become aware of what 


God has called us to be and strive


 to be the greatest at it.

Within each of us is 


wellspring of abundance and 



the seeds of opportunity.



We all have God-given gifts 



and talents ready to be 



discovered and used to serve 



and glorify God.


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 to be clear, that doesn’t mean that 


we have been overlooked, slighted, or our talents 


are less valuable than those of others.

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 appear to be skills and  


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 gift!
