What Are Your Talents?

Romans 12:6 (NLT)

6 In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well.

- What talent has God blessed you with?
- Are you using your talents or wasting them?
If you don't know what your talent is then maybe you should take some time to think about it and figure it out. You've been given a gift in something and one of the easiest ways to figure it out most of the time is to realize what it is you do easily. In other words, what is it that comes to you naturally? Or what do you pick up on rather quickly?
Some talents require a lot more work or practice than others. But if that is indeed your given talent that work isn't like work at all, it is usually something you enjoy doing.
But perhaps the bigger question is this - Are you using your talents for yourself or are you using them for the glory of God? 
God (in His grace) has blessed us with the gift of doing certain things well. Whatever your talent or gift is, don't overlook the power and potential that is possible when you do it for His glory!
Here is a very moving example of what talent looks like. And believe me, this kind of talent can only be given by a mighty and powerful God like ours.
