God has blessed each of us with different talents, personalities, interests, and spiritual gifts. We each have something special to offer to the church that benefits it as a whole. When we give of ourselves in whatever way God leads us, we also benefit from a sense of purpose and belonging. God did not create us to be selfish; we are designed to be an essential part of something bigger than ourselves.
Questions for further thought:
1. What gifts do you have and how can you bless others with them?
2. How can you overcome the lie that the church doesn't need what you have to offer?
Challenge: If you aren't already giving of yourself in some way to the church, ask one of the pastors or elders to help you get connected to a ministry in need your unique abilities.
