The Gift of Service
Scripture Numbers 18:  But only you and your sons may serve as priests in connection with everything at the altar and inside the curtain. I am giving you the service of the priesthood as a gift. Anyone else who comes near the sanctuary must be put to death.”
Observation: We don’t often think of our jobs as gifts, but they are. God has Given us talents and Gifts to use in this world to glorify Him. Our health and abilities should not be taken for granted, but be a reminder to us of God’s generous nature. We are here for a purpose and if we seek to find how are talents can be used for God’s glory it will grow us closer to God and a better place in heaven as we earn rewards for our service here.
Application: I need not take for granted my work no matter how menial it might seem. God has put me here for a reason. I need to be more aware of my surroundings and people in my life and look for ways to show them the love of Christ through my work, actions and words.
Prayer: Dear Lord thank you for all you give me especially the talents you have given me. Show me how to use them for your glory. Open my eyes to what you want me to do and get rid of this selfishness I have. May I glorify You each day.
