One has this gift, another has that.
—1 Corinthians 7:7
Today consciously commit your gift to God:
Father, you have given me the gift you have chosen for me. I now commit myself and my gift to you to use when you please, where you please, as you please.
Make Lois Cheney’s prayer your own:
For what I am that I ought not to be,
For what I am not that I ought to be,
Be with my mouth in what it speaks.
Be with my hands in what they do.
Be with my mind in what it thinks.
Be with my heart in what it feels.
Work in me
in spite of me.
Your talent is God’s gift to you.
Your use of it is your gift to God.
