I Timothy 4:14 -Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.
We’re instructed to properly take care of the gift which God has given us. We all have a gift that is to be used for God’s glory. We don’t have the gifts so we can glorify ourselves. We don’t have the gifts so we can get rich in the world. They’ve been given to us for the purpose of kingdom building.
When you neglect something you mistreat it. You take it for granted as though you could care less. You don’t pay attention to it or fail to do it.
How many of you are sitting there reading this post, knowing you have been called to do something for the Lord? You choose to ignore the gift despite the tug you feel on your heart.
What about those of you who sit in church knowing you’ve been called but don’t operate in the gift which the Holy Spirit has placed on the inside of you?
Don’t feel bad because the God we serve gives us opportunities to get it right. Take the opportunity today. Let the Lord use you for His glory. Be that vessel for Him to use as He sees fit.
