How did April sneak up on me this quickly? I’m going to be using April (Tax Day, Earth Day, Easter, etc) to focus on Stewardship. I’ll be straight with you: stewardship has never been my favorite subject, mostly because I have a fear of numbers and I’ve always associated stewardship with money.
There’s so much more to stewardship, though, and during April, we’re going to take a look at all of them. An oft overlooked aspect of stewardship is talents. My buddy Jason asked last week if anyone had hidden talents. I have double-jointed thumbs (or something to that effect), and can cross each of my thumbs over the bottom knuckles of my hand, and while doing so, play do-a-deer on the piano, backward.
It’s not going to win the novelty category on Star Search, but, I did make a short video about my weird thumb-thing.
Now, how can I use that talent for God’s glory? I probably can’t. But, God has given me other talents that I’ve kept hidden. I sing. I’m not great, and I can’t hit all the notes that others have, but, I have a desire to sing, can follow along, learn new songs quickly and more importantly, want to use it to praise my heavenly Father.
Tell me about your hidden talent(s). Which one would make David Letterman’s Stupid Human Tricks segment? Which ones can you use for the glory of God?
