WORD FOCUS: DEVELOP YOUR TALENT
TEXT: Colossians 1:10 “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being
fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;..”
Too many people suffer from “destination disease.” In other words, they’ve reached a certain level or obtained a goal, now they’re coasting in life off of what they’ve already learned. Studies tell us that 50% of people, after they graduate from high school, will never read an entire book the rest of their life. One reason is that people see learning as a period of life instead of a way of life. They think, “I’m out of school. I’m done with my training. I’ve got my job.” But, God never created us to reach one level and stop. Whether you’re 90 years old or 9 years old, you should be constantly learning, improving your skills, and getting better at what you do.
The key is that you have to take responsibility for your growth. Growth is not automatic. What steps are you taking to get better? Are you reading creative and edifying books? Listening to valuable teaching DVD/CD’s? Are you taking courses on the internet? Going to any seminars? Do you have any mentors? Don’t just coast through life relying on what you’ve already learned. You have treasure on the inside. Develop your talent and become all that God created you to be.
The life that came into you at the New birth can affect your mental processes by governing your thinking and intellect. It is developing your spirit. Lord, help me to maximize my potentials. I will follow Your leading and walk in the light of life to enhance my entire personality and increase my intelligence Amen.
