Faith Talk: Using your abilities

Faith Talk: Using your abilities

"Do you think that the only time God is pleased with you is when you're doing things such as reading the Bible, attending church, praying, giving, or sharing your faith? No, He enjoys every detail of your life, whether you are working, playing, resting or eating. He doesn't miss a thing: 'The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.' (Psalm 37:23 NLT) Every human activity except sin can be done for God's pleasure if you do it in faith and with an attitude of gratitude. You can sell cars, wash dishes, practise medicine, teach children, write a computer program or raise a family for the glory of God. Like a proud parent, God enjoys watching you use the abilities He's given you for His glory. In the Academy-Award-winning movie Chariots of Fire, Eric Liddell said, 'I believe God made me for a purpose, but I also believe he made me fast, and when I run I feel His pleasure."
