DEVOTIONAL:

THE TALENTED CHRISTIAN

MATTHEW 25

Do you ever feel like you don’t have much to offer? As a child of the King, know that He has blessed you immensely.  The problem we have is that we look around at others in the churches that have more talents than us and we begin to compare ourselves to them.  We need to realize that God has blessed us all individually and uniquely. He gives us talents according to our abilities.  Our talents multiply when we ask God for help.

 

We need to realize that God has blessed us all individually and uniquely.

 

Rather than concentrate on what we don’t have, focus on what God has already blessed us with. Transitioning from comparison to acknowledgment allows us to truly multiply what God has blessed us with.

 

Transitioning from comparison to acknowledgment….

 

Many times I feel like I’m not talented like others who have amazing gifts and that I’m stuck here with nothing. This feeling came as I focused on what everybody else had.  It wasn’t until I finally started focusing on and using the gifts that God had blessed me with, that I realized how truly blessed I was. The first step is to put into action what God has already given you.  Move beyond what everyone else has and focus on what God has for you already.

 

Move beyond what everyone else has and focus on what God has for you already.

 
Take a moment in prayer today and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you. Take a step of faith by volunteering or getting plugged into your church. Put your talents to use in God’s kingdom.

The next time you feel talent less, know this:

You are blessed and the beloved of God. Live your life in light of this truth.
