I love music, which is something that I did not like all that much growing up. Somehow I found myself having a desire to learn the guitar around high school. I am still not sure to this day what prompted that impulse, however, I can proudly say I have stuck with it for about six years now. Now through guitar, I have found myself playing in multiple worship teams growing up in the church and at youth group. I have found much joy in worshiping The Lord with the gifts and talents that He has given me. And this is the hard part to remember: He has given me these talents, and I should always remember to honor Him through these gifts.
1 Peter 4:10-11, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.”
God has given all of us gifts, and not one gift is better or more important than another. I believe that God can be glorified no matter what you do or how flamboyant it comes across. If you are a great speaker giving messages in front of thousands of people, to God be the glory. If you clean floors, then to God be the glory as well. No job is more important than another. I think that God’s creativity and the variety He created in life is something to celebrate and to recognize every day of our life.
