What Do You Have?

The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have. (Vince Lombardi, late football coach)

An attractive outward appearance may win beauty contests, but it doesn’t tell you anything about who the person really is at heart. Someone who is not gifted physically may never win a sports award, but when he or she displays their talent in music, drama, or art, we applaud them. Likewise, we recognize the scholar who gains knowledge and then teaches eager students.

Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies (1 Peter 4:11).
