SHARING OUR SKILLS
We all have talents and skills that are unique to us because of our past experiences, background and situations. God wants us to find out what our unique skills are and use them to help others. We should be grateful for the abilities God gives us rather than thinking about all the skills we don’t have. When we focus on what things we do well and share them with others in order to help them, we will begin to see how God wants to use us for His purpose.
1 Peter 4:10 “God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we are so grateful for the unique purpose You have for us. We know we may similar skills as someone else but we also have a uniqueness You have created for us. Help us to know what special purpose You have for us and use us to help others. And as we share with others what You have blessed us with, remind us to give You all the glory. We thank You today for the unique talents and skills You have given us. Help us to help others with these gifts. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
