1 Corinthians 12:7-11New International Version (NIV)
7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given
for the common good. 8 To one there is given through the
Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of
knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith
by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one
Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another
prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to
another speaking in different kinds of tongues,[a] and to
still another the interpretation of tongues.[b] 11 All these
are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes
them to each one, just as he determines.
The way we bring glory to God is by using our talent.
"God is glorified when we use our abilities
to serve others."
Each of us are unique individual
personalities with a true purpose…
a reason for being.
Every being entered into
the earth realm
with a God-given purpose.
Each of us is blessed
to have a unique set of skills
given to us by 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 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,
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!
