If your gift is service, devote yourself to serving. If your gift is teaching, devote yourself to teaching. Romans 12:7 Common English Bible (CEB)

Abraham Lincoln said, “If there is anything a man can do well, then I say let him do it.” I am awed by the gifts of the members of this congregation: singing, teaching, business, gardening, inspiring, leading, cooking, mentoring, comforting, welcoming, counseling, planning, networking, giving and numerous others.

I am equally inspired by the willingness of the members to share their God endowed gifts for the advancement of God’s work on earth. It is only when Christians are engaged that the church moves forward. Whatever gifts God invested in each of us are intended to be used for the betterment of all.

Dear Creator God, help me to understand that you created each of us as important instruments for good in your plan. Amen.  Mitch Carnell
