1 Thessalonians 4:9-12; Psalm 98; Matthew 25:14-30

Have a go

Everyone is gifted, and we are not asked to compare ourselves with others but to use our natural and spiritual gifts, generously, even extravagantly, in love. Whether we have visible gifts which the world affirms, gifts of practical support and hospitality, or hidden gifts like being present, offering a listening ear or interceding, God expects us to be generous, to take risks, to have a go. Mistakes are never a problem for God. Being controlled by fear suggests we have closed ourselves off from the Holy Spirit, so burying our gifts is condemned. When we risk loving service, abundant reward awaits. How will you use your gifts today?
