What’s your favorite thing to do?
Do you have a hobby or thing your good at?
Do you love to play baseball–swing a bat?
Can you sing and carry a tune so true?
I love to write–poems and stories.
I love to read what other’s write.
I love to sit on the porch at first morning’s light.
I like to sing songs that tell of God’s glory.
God’s given us so many things:
Nature and family, games and colors,
Things that we should enjoy with others.
Everything we love comes from the King.
Nothing you have is truly your own,
Not your talent, or family, or money.
Not even your ability to laugh and be funny.
Everything is for God’s glory to show.
So what will you do with what you enjoy?
Will you share all you can,
Remembering where it all began?
It came from God, so give Him the glory.
God’s Word tells us that every good thing we have comes from God:
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17
He also tells us how to use our talents and gifts:
“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:17
What do you think your talents are? How can you use them to honor God?
