Manna For Today: Sunday, January 29, 2017
II Timothy 1:7 – That precious memory triggers another: your honest faith—and what a rich faith it is, handed down from your grandmother Lois to your mother Eunice, and now to you! And the special gift of ministry you received when I laid hands on you and prayed—keep that ablaze! God doesn’t want us to be shy with his gifts, but bold and loving and sensible.
God has greatly gifted us with and by His Spirit and with that has given us instructions for utilizing that which He so generously made available to us.
1. Don’t be shy; be bold!
• Timidity can nullify God-given opportunity.
2. Be loving and kind.
• People don’t care about how much you know until they know how much you care.
3. Be sound-minded.
• A sensible mind is one governed by the Spirit of God.
Ask God today to give you the opportunity to employ His gifts in your life with boldness, love and sensibility.
Peace and blessings!
