Use Your Gift (1) Ноябрь 17, 2010

Posted by Lee Goodall in Today's Devotional.

‘Having…gifts…let us use them…’ Romans 12:6

The Bible says, ‘Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them…’ (Romans 12:6 NKJV) God has ‘graced’ you to do certain things well. Now, that doesn’t mean doors will automatically open, and, like cream, you’ll just rise to the top. Indeed, what you get overnight you can lose overnight. You must first discern your gifts, use every opportunity to sharpen them, learn from your mistakes, and be tenacious about what God’s called you to do. In high school ‘Sparky’ flunked Latin, algebra, English and physics. He made the golf team but promptly lost the only match of the season, then he lost the consolation match. He was awkward socially-more shy than disliked. He never once asked a girl out on a date in high school. One thing, however, was important to Sparky-drawing. He was proud of his artwork even though nobody else appreciated it. He submitted cartoons to the editors of his high school yearbook but they were rejected. Even so, he aspired to be an artist. After high school he sent samples of his work to The Walt Disney Studios. Again he was rejected. But Sparky didn’t quit. He decided to write his autobiography in cartoons. The popularity of his cartoon strip eventually led to countless books and television shows. You see, Sparky was Charles Schulz, creator of the Peanuts comic strip, the most famous cartoonist of all time. Like his main character, Charlie Brown, Schulz seemed unable to succeed at many things. But he made the most of his God-given talent, refused to quit, and ended up winning. So, use your gift.
