Most of us recognize that we all have gifts, talents, time, and resources. Most of the time, we work hard to leverage these things in order to achieve success or to advance ourselves in life. Sometimes we even refer to these things as “God-given” gifts. But have you ever stopped to think what purposes God may have given you these things to accomplish? Most of the time, we leverage them for our good and our purposes. In this week’s teaching, we see from the Bible that God has given us our time, talents, and treasures to help us accomplish the purposes that He has for us in life. But it’s not always about using these things for our good, but for the good things God has planned for us to do.
Matthew 25:14-27 – Everything you have is from God, who cares WHAT you do.
Each of us has the same three assets. Time, Talent, and Treasure.
TIME – Your schedule reflects the priority that God and His will has done in your life.
TALENT – You have skills to bring to the table.
-n You were given your abilities to make more than a dollar. He wants you to make a difference. How are you right now doing that?
TREASURE – The first fruits belong to God
1 Corinthians 3:10-15
“You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength.” DO YOU?
