Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.
My wife, Reta works with preschoolers and when she comes home in the afternoon there is no telling what kinds of stains she will have on her shirt (some she didn’t even make herself) or what she will pull out of her pocket. This week it has been ‘diamonds’ her new students have been finding on the playground to give to her. She uses the gifts God has given to her to find the diamond in each of these little gems their parents and God has placed in her trust.
Each of us is fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalms 139:14) and each of us has a special purpose. What she does, many would not do, and things you and I do she can’t or would not do. Let us embrace our differences for through them we complement each other and fulfill the purposes God intended for us to achieve.
The apostle Paul tells us in Romans 12:6-9,
“Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching; Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness. Let love be without dissimulation.”Wherever God places you, bloom as you are planted.
"God, Let me be what You want me to be.
God is Good...all the time
