David, a hero of the faith, is often remembered for being a mighty warrior and the king of Israel. But sometimes we forget how he began… David started out as a shepherd. He worked hard, and developed his craft. He became the best shepherd he could be. And his talents came in handy when he faced the Philistine giant, Goliath. The skills he had honed protecting his sheep were used to take down a mighty enemy!
You may feel like your job as a waitress, or a janitor, or a babysitter isn’t accomplishing anything for God. But, you never know when those skills will come in handy to take down a ’goliath.’ God has you exactly where you are for a reason. Become the very best at whatever you’re doing and do it for God. Paul writes in 1 Corinthians, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.”
Look for ways to use your skills for God’s kingdom and you will be amazed at what He can accomplish through you. Look for a way to reach your world right where you are today – with the skills and talents God has given you.
