HOW IMPORTANT IS YOUR GIFT?

I came across a scripture in the bible that really got me thinking and I would love to share it with you. Proverbs 18:16 says “A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men.” Hope it’s got you thinking too?
If you study carefully the lives of great men and women around the world, you will notice that they didn’t get to where they are by chance, instead they harnessed their gifts(Singing, acting, writing and so on) to the point that it caught the attention of great men and it is their connection with these men that brought them to the limelight.

Your gift is not meant to be hidden but to be used to make a difference in the world. I don’t know of any sane person who doesn’t desire to be great. Many times whether consciously or unconsciously, we strive for the top in our academic pursuit, working place, communities and so on but God says that you can be great, you can get to that top place you so desire and even surpass it through the use of the gifts he has given you and not through your qualifications as many people think(Ask Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg.)

Treasures are not meant to be hidden. Your gifts are treasures so don’t hide it. Cultivate it, develop it, polish it and beyond the sky will be your limit.

Thanks for reading and God bless you.
