Everybody gets a gift. And these gifts come in different doses and combinations. “Each person,” scripture says, “is given something to do that shows who God is” (I Corinthians 12:7). Our inheritance is grace-based and equal. But our assignments are tailor-made. No two snowflakes are the same. No two fingerprints are the same. So, why would two skill sets be the same? No wonder Paul said “Make sure you understand what the Master wants” (Ephesians 5:17).
Do you understand what your Master wants? Do you know what makes you, you? Have you identified the features that distinguish you from every other human who has inhaled oxygen? You have an “acreage” to develop, a lot in life. Scripture reminds us, “Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that” (Galatians 6:4). You be you!
