Monday Blueprint Madness

Paul’s advice to Timothy is applicable to us today.
“Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the body of elders laid their hands on you. Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.”

Or…if you choose to neglect your gifts, they can rust and become overgrown – a loss for all. There is no pleasure in witnessing a gift that is lost to disuse. It is a tragedy for all.

God, help us to discern the gifts you have given to us. Help us to be guided by your wisdom, sent to us through the Spirit. Help us to be diligent, giving ourselves wholly to you and submitting to your will for us. Let us bear witness to your grace, so that others can benefit from our efforts.

Amen.
