I have put my hope in your word.

Matthew 25: 14-30

The talent I could use more for Jesus is . . . .


Today, let’s consider all the unused and wasted talents we have. May each person who reads this will think about their own talents and give them to God so He can use them in His ways.


There are some great articles for us to read today.

MOVING MOUNTAINS MINISTRY is housed in our church. I frequently see Ellen, her daughter, and other volunteers working to heep the room stocked and organized so new foster parents can get clothing, toys, and supplies they need to get started with a child who can not live with their parents for a while. Ellen has such a heart for what she does and gives her ministry many hours at any time of the day or night she is needed. I wish you all could talk to her and gain some of her desire to serve others as needed. She also encourages families to learn about and pray about becoming a foster parent. Check out her website. Pray about how you might could help her.

Refer to the incomplete sentence following the Scripture at the top of this post. What is your talent? How can you use it?

Have a meaningful day as you seek to serve for Him in our community or wherever He sends you.
