Are we using our God given blessings and talents ?
Use your talents, use your gifting, use your blessings to bless others, don't hide it, or keep it idle. I was cutting the grass today, found a small section of our back garden was covered over with piece of metal, when I lifted the metal piece, I didn't find any green grass, all the ground was covered with insects. God spoke to me through this to never waste the gifts and the blessings God has given me, but to use it to glorify God. Sadu Sundera whom God used to spread Christianity among the people in India once told a story of a Buddist Monk. This is a true story. Hope reading this story helps us to examine ourself and motivate us to serve our great God.
"While I was in Tibet I saw a Buddhist, a monk, who had lived for five or six years in a cave. When he went into the cave he had good eyesight. But because he stayed so long in the darkness his eyes grew weaker and weaker, and at last he became quite blind. It is just the same with us. If we do not use the blessings which we have received from God for His Glory, we are in danger of losing them for ever.- sadhu Sundar Singh "
