What are you passionate about? What brings you the most joy? Have you discovered your God given talent yet? We hope none of you are questioning whether or not you possess a specific talent. You were given certain characteristics and gifts for a purpose. That is why we all don’t share the same talents. What a boring world we would live in! It says in scripture, “We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.” -Romans 12:6-8
Seems like an easy task. Live each day exemplifying your strengths the best way you know how. If you feel like you can do more to improve not only your life but also those around you, you probably can. There is no reason to be an OK leader, be a great one. Why give a little when you know you can give a lot? If your strong point is encouraging those around you, build up other people’s spirits as often as you can. We can always do more… always. Our potential is limitless. Who wants to live a mediocre life? Not us! And you should want more for your life too. Do what you love and do it the very best way you can. That is when real satisfaction and contentment is achieved. When we finally start using our talents for the enhancement of the lives around us, we begin to live life right.
“When God gives you a talent, he expects you to use it. It's like a muscle. If you use it, it will grow. If you don't, you'll lose it.”
