Reflection: The other day my daughter asked me to make headbands with her. What this entails is her picking out materials, designing the headband and I cut and sew it together. It’s a partnership and she loves the process. She also takes all the credit. After a headband is completed she says, “look at what I created”, even though most of the grunt work is done by me. How much am I like that with God? Any skills and talents I have, I attribute them to me having mad skills, instead of praising God for gifting
me. Any success I have is simply because of my association with Jesus. He deserves all the praise and glory and yet, he chooses to use a wretch like me to represent him.
Question: When was the last time you thanked God for the gifts and talents he has given you?
Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, please help us to use whatever gift we have received from you, to serve one another and to bring glory to you. Amen.
