Yesterday, we talked about calling, about giftedness.
Regarding giftedness, I like this, from Akeela and the Bee...
The problem is not that you think you are inadequate, but that you know you are powerful beyond measure... you say, 'Who am I to be gorgeous, talented, smart?' ... Who are you NOT to be, when through this you show the image of God? (my paraphrase)
Sometimes, I think we spin our wheels pursuing areas we're not particularly gifted in, because we are frightened to be powerful in another area we know we are made to inhabit. Or maybe we pursue other things because we're frightened that no one will care about our true callings, or notice we are beautiful.
"Conduct yourselves wisely...making the most of the time." Colossians 4:5
