STOP AND THINK – If you are not using what you already have, you won’t use what you think you need. (Ken Duncan, Australian professional photographer)

We are often tempted to say, “If I only had (fill in the blank), I could do ….” But the question, as Duncan points out, is “Are you using what you already have?” Chances are that when we don’t adequately use what we already have, we probably wouldn’t do any better with anything more. Use what you have now in the best way possible.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. (1 Peter 4:10)
