1 Thessalonians 4:9-11, Ps.98, Matthew 25:14-30

God asks us to take responsibility for his gifts

We can struggle to believe we’re gifted because we compare ourselves with others. God simply asks us to use whatever our natural or spiritual gifts are in love. He doesn’t dictate the detail but asks us to take responsibility for how we use them. We may have visible gifts like leadership, or creativity that bring mana, or quiet hidden gifts like hospitality, listening well or interceding for others. To keep gifts to ourselves is to ‘bury’ them. God promises a reward in heaven for our willingness to risk serving him through love. Mary has lived this; ask for her help.
