Don’t Neglect Your Gift
Scripture: 1 Timothy 4:  Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the body of elders laid their hands on you.
Observation: God has given me gifts to use for His glory, but most of my day I use them for me. I use the talents at work to earn money and yes I do use my gifts at times in service to others in His name. I don’t use them enough however in His service. Too much of my time is used doing nothing, as I let my gifts sit and waste away opportunities of service in His name are ignored.
Application: God has opened the door for me to use my gifts in the small group ministry. He has divinely guided me. Already I’m trying to make excuses why not to do it, that it will take too much time, but I need to persevere and bless God this time.
Prayer: Dear Lord only by your strength will I be able to succeed in accomplishing using my gifts for your glory. Help me please, fulfill the purpose you created me for.
