I'm a firm believer in gifts. I admit, I enjoy receiving them too, but I'm talking about a different kind of gifts. God has bestowed on each of us a particular talent, or bent to use to further His kingdom. For some it could be the gift of encouragement - spurring others on in their race. Some abilities are flashy that all can see. Others may be more behind the scenes. No matter what area God has gifted you in, He expects you to be using it, and not hiding it in the ground.
If someone asked you what gift God has given you, what would your response be? Are you using it? Are you being faithful with the talent He has entrusted to you?
