"Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people."--Colossians 3:23(NLT)
I recently watched a local TV broadcast about an female entrepreneur. She was a dynamic cook who made awesome pasta sauce. Her family and friends kept telling her she should bottle and sell her homemade sauce. She finally conceded to the urging of her loved ones. She nervously packed her sauce in a Tupperware container and courageously took it to a local grocery story. And guess what? They loved it! She now supplies this store with fresh, homemade pasta sauce--right out of her kitchen--on a weekly basis!
Each of us were born gifts, talents, and abilities. These gifts, talents, and abilities were given to us by our heavenly Father. He has given us the ability to succeed in whatever we do, but we must "do". Idleness, laziness, dreaming without initiating never got anyone any where.
What gifts, talents, or abilities are you sitting on? Are you working with all your might? What is holding you back from leaving average and mediocre and soaring to height of exceptional excellence? Your gifts, talents, and abilities are not needed in the grave. They are needed now.
"The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry our their dream.”--Les Brown
