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 


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 


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!
