3 Ways to Maximize Your God-Given Gifts

God gives all of us gifts and we have a lifetime to use them, but we'll be happier and more effective if we develop and maximize them. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

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 3:12-14

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.
Be a life-long student of God - never retire.
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
