“…we can each do different things. Yet the same God works in all of us and helps us in everything we do. The Spirit has given each of us a special way of serving others.” (I Corinthians 12: 6-7, Contemporary English Version)
Our gifts are unique and uniquely wonderful! We all have a special way about us, singular qualities and specific callings for our lives. Every single one of us is needed, special, and powerful.
We should never compare our talents or our daily work in life. No one has less to give than another and not one of us is meant to fill a niche that isn’t truly ours to fill. God’s design is neither limited nor flawed. When He created infinite Life He made it to harmonize. Everything fits and we are each part of that everything, a required element of His creative plan for Life and all in the name of Love.
Don’t be timid about your specialness. You are powerful and splendid. You bring rich benefits to others through your light. And it is not egotism to accept what God saw fit to create, and to realize that all that we do—each special way we serve others—is God working in us, not some mere human endeavor at goodness.
We glorify God as we appreciate our gifts, treasure that they are God’s qualities animated through us. Give God the glory gladly and gratefully and utilize His infinite capacity. Be you and do it freely, with success and finesse!
