Time and Talents

So God’s message continued to spread. The number of believers greatly increased in Jerusalem, and many of the Jewish priests were converted, too. Act 6:7 NLT

God’s will from the very beginning of the church was that the message of the gospel spread all over the world. The reason it continued to spread was the leader’s decisions to reorganization time and talents. They found it inefficient for them to be running the food program as oppose to teaching God’s word. They made the changes necessary assigning the right people to the job and as a result the believers greatly increased, unlikely people (Jewish priests) came to faith, and God’s Kingdom grew.

As believers we need to analyze how we use our time and talents. If God has gifted you in a certain area, that’s where you should focus your efforts. If you don’t, not only will you be wasting time, but you will underuse your talents, prevents someone else from using theirs and bring harm to the growth of God’s Kingdom.

God, help us use the gifts that you have given us for Your kingdom. May we use our time wisely while we are here on earth. My we be an asset to the kingdom and not a prevention of its growth.
