“For by the grace given to me, I tell everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he should think. Instead, think sensibly, as God has distributed a measure of faith to each one. According to the grace given to us, we have different gifts,”
Romans 12:3, 6 a HCSB
God has given to each of us a measure of faith and different gifts to use to build up the body of Christ. God does not want me to sit around navel-gazing, so absorbed in my own circumstances I am rendered unable to use the abilities He has given me. When my mindset is wrong, when my focus is no longer on the cross, no longer heavenward, faith flies out the window. There is no faith in self-absorption; there is nothing sensible about it!
Today, may you turn your focus to heaven and grasp hold of the measure of faith you’ve been given. Glorify God by using the gifts He has given you to build up and encourage others in the body of Christ. 🚦
