Side Effects of Talent

Friday, December 28, 2012

In His grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. Romans 12:5

Everyone has some awesome gifts that God has given to us. But like side effect to medicine, gifts have associated habits or behaviors that may be distracting. You may have a talent to multi task and juggle many things but that may come at a price if not being able to devote your complete attention on one person. Maybe your gift is carefully crafting your words when you speak to be respectful of other's feelings. However, others may see you as being quiet or disinterested because of that.. Keep this in mind the next time someone's behavior bothers you. Be patient and understanding of those behaviors while honoring God for creating the awesome gifts they showcase.

    The important thing is to remember that all of us have gifts and use them as God intends.

    Working closely with 150 people every day makes me be aware of how important it is to treat others with the respect I expect of them.

    Thank God each one of us have different talents that cause our gifts to ground. Each one of us is a tool to help someone else. That's even more reason to be caring and supportive of each other. Thanks for the reminder!
