We love to raise people on a pedestal. We’re amazed when talented musicians play their instruments, and we marvel at intricately painted artwork. We’re motivated by powerfully-delivered inspirational speeches, and we’re moved by beautiful writing.

What makes these gifted people so special? Has God uniquely blessed them with extra talent? I would say no. The difference is how they use their gifts.

God has not gifted people a unique amount of talent, but rather gifted every person with a unique gift. It is how we use our gift that determines whether our gift is seen by the rest of the world.

It’s easy to see the gifts in others, and it’s even easier to become envious of other gifts. But what if we realized that the gifts we have are just as powerful and unique as those we admire?
