I believe everyone is blessed with a gift. What becomes our struggle is understanding what our gifts are. We often think that a gift is something like singing, dancing, etc. While these are all gifts, it is not limited to such talents. You may have the gift of compassion. Being able to just listen and show empathy to others. You may have the gift of managing finances. Some may refer to your gifts as your strengths. We must understand the gifts that have been given to us and then we must share those gifts with others. 1 Corinthians 12:4 (NIV) states; There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them.
Don’t be envious of another person’s gift because that was meant for them. Instead of being envious, try to unwrap your God given gift. Your gift may be great or small but whichever it is, we are required by God to unwrap and use our gifts.
And lastly, appreciate your gift. Remember where you are in the grand scheme of things. It is God who gets the glory and it is God who gives the gifts. Be thankful at all times.
