Different Skills

We all have something we want to do, but we can’t do it. Why? Because we don’t have the skill to do that thing. For example, I would love to paint a beautiful picture, but I do not have the skill to draw and paint well.
Our Bible Reading today tells us that God has given each Christian different skills. But sometimes we become discouraged because people in the world tell us our skills are not important. Paul says in verse 2a, “Don’t change yourselves to be like the people of this world, but let God change you inside with a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to understand and accept what God wants for you.”
God has given you skills to use in His kingdom. Maybe your skill is teaching a class or signing songs. Maybe your skill is taking care of children or visiting people in hospitals. Or maybe your skill is cleaning the church building or shoveling snow from the sidewalks.
Use your skills to serve God and bless His kingdom today!
