Inside each of us, God divinely and intentionally deposited a set of gifts.
God is honored when we identify, develop and multiply the gifts He’s put inside of us. This happens in the context of conversation with God, asking Him to reveal His dreams for our lives and to give us the tools and practical wisdom to walk in those dreams ….HE DEFINITELY HAS DREAMS FOR YOU!
When stewarded well, those talents will increase and multiply, blessing the world and pointing others to God.
Know this: You were created on PURPOSE, for a PURPOSE. I believe in the power of Christ in YOU and me, working to reconcile and redeem all of God’s creation back to Himself. The work of restoration happens when we intentionally respond to His activity in and around us, and realize that we are God’s partners on the earth.
Restoration moves forward when we intentionally develop the God-sized dreams and gifts He has put inside of us for the good of the world and the glory of God.
In essence, this is stewardship.
Stewardship is a foundational element of what it is to be a Christian. Stewardship is when we recognize what He’s given us, and work at it with diligence and discipline. It’s partnering with God to grow the things He has entrusted to our care.
In this season, I am stewarding my roles and gifts by being intentional with my time to become an outstanding wife, an great mom, and grow in my communication skills (writing and speaking): all with the underlying purpose of discipling others towards God.
The gifts God has entrusted to us were actually meant to change the world. Not stay hidden under a basket or lie dormant.
Friends- I’d LOVE to know- what is a gift you have been given, that you can develop and offer as a blessing to the world around you?
(a “gift” can be a passion, a talent, an interest, a position, a season of life, a relationship…and they don’t have to be ministry related– He is Lord of all things, and will be glorified in all sectors of society as we let our lights shine.)
