MAXIMIZE YOUR TALENT
Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms” (1 Peter 4:10 NIV)
We have been given unique talents and abilities from God.
The bundle of talents you have is what God gave you that makes you who you are and sets you apart from others.
These talents are not there for our personal gratification.
These talents are there to benefit others. Others have talents that will benefit you.
In body of Christ, each part matters. There is no such thing as insignificant people in the family of God. We are shaped to serve God and He wants to see how we use our talents.
No matter what your vocation, the talents necessary to do them came from God and we have them to serve others.
Our job is manager of the talents given to us by God. Since God gave them to us, they matter. It is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful” (1 Corinthians 4:2 NIV).
God created us and in so doing made an investment in us and He expects a return on His investment.
Do we use the talents given us to make world a better place of do we use them to serve self? God has given us this gift in a talent and He wants us to use it. It is like a muscle in that when we use it there is growth. But if we do not use it we will lose it.
If we have talent and we are afraid to use it or are just lazy and just don’t use it to benefit others, you will lose it. Like the parable of the talents in Luke 19 , if we do not use them , He takes them away and gives them to someone who will.
USE YOUR TALENTS WISELY, GOD WILL GIVE YOU MORE.
USE YOUR TIME WISELY, GOD WILL GIVE YOU MORE TIME.
USE YOUR ENERGY WISELY, GOD WILL GIVE YOU MORE ENERGY.
USE YOUR INFLUENCE WISELY, GOD WILL INFLUENCE YOUR INFLUENCE.
GOD WILL BLESS YOUR LEVEL OF FAITHFULNESS.
“Your particular talent and gift is joined with everyone else’s to form the big puzzle of life. We need your piece of the puzzle to make it happen. Do not save up your talent hoarding it for a future date. When you meet God, tell Him that you gave all you had away serving others!”
