KEY VERSEColossians 3:17 (Paul to the Colossians)
And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father.

You are gifted. I have given you the skills and abilities to serve me. Use them as I lead you, for I want you to play a role in all that I do. Take pride in your gifts. Put effort into further developing them. A seed planted in the ground needs care and attention, and so do your gifts. Practice using them, and research how to improve them. Watch and learn from those who have mastered them. Don’t let your gift form a layer of dust. Keep it active and fresh.

And enjoy my gift. Thank me for it. Don’t wish you had another’s abilities. Appreciate the work others do and encourage them in their service. But take pleasure in how I’ve wired you. I do. I love when you use my gifts, and I want you to exercise them. I want you to contribute towards all I am doing today and plan to do in the future.

Continue to develop and deploy your gifts for the Lord. Read a book on a skill you want to grow in, study YouTube videos, or meet with an expert in that field to learn all you can.
