USE YOUR GIFTS
1 Timothy 4:14 NKJV "Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership."
All gifts were given to us. That's why they are called gifts. We acquire skills, but gifts are given to us by God. Everyone has a gift - we are talking about physical gifts - everyone was born with at least one gift. We all have the ability to do something well.
But not everyone uses their gifts. Some are not actually aware of their gifts, and some who are aware, for some reason are not using their gifts. Understand that every gift is a blessing; and you know what the Bible says about blessings, they make rich! No gift is useless! Are you aware that someone became a billionaire (in Dollars) through writing? Others have also become rich by cooking and talking! And these are things many of us don't take seriously. How did David become popular? By slinging a stone! He also knew how to play instruments, and that took him to the palace!
Discover your gifts and use them! You can even use your gifts on your job. Your gift may not be recognized as one, but it doesn't make it not a gift! You may have discovered your gift and may have been using it; develop it; take it to the next level; make it a business; market it; advertise it; do it so well that people will be willing to pay for it! God has blessed you with certain special abilities; do not neglect them.
