Invest Your Talents

By   •   May 28   •   Topics:

God, in His mercy and goodness, has endowed every man with certain gifts, talents, and capabilities. These are not to be used selfishly for our own profit, but for the glory of God and for the building of His kingdom. Our personalities, our intelligence, and our capabilities are gifts from His own bountiful hand. If we divert their use for our own profit, we become guilty of selfishness.

It is good business for an employee or junior partner in the firm to work for the profit and interest and glory of the owner. When the owner profits, all members of the firm profit. So, as stewards of our talents, we should invest them for the glory, praise, and honor of God. If God is glorified, we as His partners will be blessed. Our voices, our service, and our abilities are to be employed, primarily, for the glory of God.

Prayer for the day

Everything I have, You have given me, Father. Now give me wisdom to use these gifts completely in Your will.

    We serve an awesome God! Today I received a rich blessing but realize that along with that comes a commitment to use the talents he has vested in me to enhance the spiritual lives of others.

    So thankful for finding God again and wish I could found sooner, please pray for all that have not found salvation through Jesus Christ.

    If you’ve been blessed with a particular talent or gift, Remember to thank him and use it for the glory of God. First and foremost.
