God-Given Gifts

Developing Your skills, Using Your gifts, Serving others
I never thought I'd be writing a devotional blog. But I can see how God used scores of things throughout my life to prepare me, from being editor of my high school newspaper to leading women's Bible studies to writing papers in seminary.

God is using the details of your life to develop your gifts too.

That's why we should:
1. Learn from every experience.
Both mistakes and successes are good teachers.
Philippians 3:12-13

2. Humbly listen to correction.
Listening to more mature/experienced people keeps us from learning everything the hard way.
Proverbs 19:20;  Proverbs 1:8

3. Never stop learning.
Don't ever retire from God's work.
Psalm 92:12-15

God designs each of us uniquely. Let's never stop learning and serving.

"God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another." 1 Peter 4:10 NLT
