God is good to us. We are amply blessed, beyond what we can comprehend. In His wisdom, he has provided each of us with gifts, talents and abilities. No two of us are alike in our gifts, no two of us possess the same skills. We are instructed to discover, nurture and to USE our individual gifts, knowing that God gave us all our own unique abilities. We must recognize the gifts in each other. We must accept that no person has all the ability or talent to accomplish everything. If we gather together the gifts God gave us individually then we as Christians can change the world. Through God’s generosity in providing talents and energies among us, His disciples, he gives us the capacity and ability to do great things for Him. As we grow our gifts and share them and gather from others we build stronger churches, we build stronger communities of faith to share and spread His love.
During this season of Advent, uncover or dust off your gifts. Look for ways to share your gifts, talents and abilities. Be generous with your gifts, partnering with others who have different skills to Build His Kingdom here.
