Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God gave us gifts to use in his Kingdom at least for two primary reasons:
  1. To bring glory to God.
  2. To bless others.
Whether we serve or speak, we are to do so with these two goals in mind, knowing that God will supply the strength to do what he has gifted us to do. All glory for what we do and say that brings others God's blessing belongs to the gracious Giver of these good gifts!

My Prayer...

Holy Father, thank you for saving me and giving me the abilities and gifts to bless your people and honor you. Help me find the ways you want me to use these gifts and abilities. I ask that you display the goodness and grace of Jesus through me as I use them. O, dear Father, I yearn to be a conduit of your gracious blessings. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
