I don’t know math. I don’t know geography or enough about politics to argue or lie my way into office. (And not every politician lies.)
I don’t know how to save the animals from extinction or how to stop child molesters (though I intend to do my very best at putting an end to it and at helping people heal from that kind of hurt.)
I don’t know about how to build a car or the best way to create a generator. I don’t know the best way to grow a tomato and I’m not sure how to tell schools that good grades in school are NOT the most urgent thing in life.
Those things are all very important.
But I wasn’t given the talents to take care of all those things.
I DO know about relationships, people, words, and faith. So I speak about what I know.
That’s what talents are.
Talents are the things that come more naturally to each of us. Use them. Ask God HOW He wants YOU to use them. Life is so much better this way. You don’t have to believe me. Believe the creator of YOU. Ask Him what you’re supposed to be doing.
Sometimes we are not even aware of all our talents. It’s always okay to ask God to make us aware of the talents He’s given us. He does this.
If you judge a fish on how well he climbs a tree, he will always fail (unless he is a tree climbing fish and climbs trees. We all know there are phenomenons so I don’t want to say always in case there is that amazing tree climbing fish somewhere out there that we haven’t heard of yet. Yay for the amazing tree climbing fishies. You guys rock!)
I don’t know who to give credit to for this tree fish saying but I’ve seen it online a few times and there is SUCH great truth to it.
Do what God’s called YOU to do. And don’t stress about everything else.
I sometimes think about what this world would look like if we each did the jobs we were called by Him to do.
You ARE on purpose. You are HERE on purpose and you are here FOR a purpose.
Ask God what He wants YOU to do today.
