Originally Published 2009-05-22
We all have different interests. Some are interested in music, and others in playing a sport. Some are interested in computers, and others are interested in biology and medicine. We also each have talents and abilities. For some, these abilities come naturally, while others have to work at developing them.
Abilities can be singing or crunching numbers, seeing patterns in seeming chaos or playing an instrument. Interest and abilities are as varied as people. But they are given to us by God, to shape us into people who can serve him in the unique roles or purposes he has given to us. We are all uniquely made, but whatever we do, no matter the interest or ability levels, we can give it our best effort, and do it for God.
Colossians 3:23-24 (NIV) - Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
