What are your talents? Painting? Counseling? Maybe you’ve never met a car problem you can’t repair or you’re an amazing chef. Perhaps you just find opportunities to help people wherever you go.Whatever your talent or skill, guess what? God’s behind it!
But He didn’t bless any of us with a talent or skill simply so we could look awesome or earn lots of cash. God wants us to steward those gifts for Him! Maybe you thought stewardship was just for your money. Well, yes, that’s a part of it. But it’s so much bigger than that. Stewardship is about everything in our lives—and that includes our talents.
If we want to please God—if we want to hear Him say, “Well done, good and faithful servant” when we meet Him in heaven—then we must faithfully use our talents the way He wants us to. Colossians 3:23–24 (ESV) tells us that everything we do should be for Christ: “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.”
