Our work should not be the only way we use our skills and abilities to bless others. Our time is God’s and we are called to use it wisely.
All of us have been called to a unique vocation based on the talents and passions God has given us. For some this is in the church, but for most it is out in the world.
This is a good thing. It forces us to engage with those we normally would not, and use our gifts to show Gods love.
But we shouldn’t limit our talents to the paid work we do. There are way too many amazing projects that need innovative and passionate individuals like you and I that are doing good work for Gods kingdom.
I was reminded of the need this weekend during a hackathon by an organization called FaithTech, seeking to solve real problems using technology for a lasting impact. It was so inspiring to see individuals from a range of backgrounds dedicate their weekend to blessing others through their unique gifting.
As the end of 2017 draws near and you start to think about the future, I encourage you prayerfully consider how and where you can give your talents.
Now this doesn’t mean we have to burn ourselves out with volunteer hours, or try and get involved with every project that comes our way, but rather to remember that our time is God’s, and we are to use it well, as we aren’t here for long.
Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.
