Daily Bible Reflections

September 20, 2011
what are your gifts?

“No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light.” – Luke 8:16

Everyone has gifts. Some of us have obvious gifts and we use them. Some are conscious of their gifts but do not understand what the gifts are for. Still, some of us are just not aware that we have gifts. For some, we know our gifts but we misuse them. And still some of us, well, we just don’t care.
Have you noticed that the world has more words to describe failure and weakness than strengths? (Even the research group Gallup had to invent its own strengths dictionary!) But to God, it is more important for us to understand our gifts, blessings and talents.
Everyone, without exception, has gifts; from the least to the greatest. These gifts exist because God put them there. They were given because God loves you and He loves the people around you. So if you don’t know your gifts, ask. If you don’t have the courage to use them, ask. If you misuse them, ask for forgiveness. St. Paul says that we have been “given every spiritual blessing in the heavens” (Ephesians 1:3).
May we learn to discover what our gifts are and use them well. Rod Velez (rod.velez@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
Today is the start of another week. In our spiritual lives, God has blessed us with gifts and spiritual faculties. What can we add to His kingdom this week?

Lord, You have given me a spirit that is true and brave. But often, my sin and my own indecision get in the way of Your will. Help me to understand what my gifts are and grant me the grace to use them to love You and to make You loved.
