  1. Using What You are Good at to Glorify God
    I Peter 4:10-11
    So often when the church makes strong efforts to involve the
    entire flock in church work, many members are known to say;
    “If I had a talent or a gift I would gladly get involved.” What
    many fail to realize is that they already have the talent or gift
    needed to get involved. Consider what you do to make a living
    and bear in mind, God will not task you if he did not think you
    could do it. (Romans 12:5-8). You are a: Salesperson, therefore
    you are a talker and persuader, you will be good at greeting,
    inviting, teaching and Evangelism. Counselor, therefore you are
    a listener and advisor, you will be good at comforting and crisis
    intervention and grief work. Teacher, therefore you are a instru-
    ctor and motivator, you will be good in educating, mentoring and
    lesson plan development. Customer service, you are a people
    person, you would do well as a greeter, and van driver. Medical
    professional, you are caring and sacrificial, you will work well in
    nursing home visits and providing wellness information. Food
    service, you like to serve people, you will do well with fellowship
    meals and in home get togethers. Administration, you like organ
    ization and communication, you will do well in clerical, web-site
    and media. Management, Banking and Finance, all of these
    prepare you to assist the leadership in church management.
    Landscaping and Housekeeping go hand in hand with building
    and grounds upkeep. Look, God knows your place in the kingdom,
    he is preparing you while you earn a living. BAG
