I don’t know what you’re good at.
Maybe you’re amazing at building things.
Maybe you’re skilled at fixing broken things.
Maybe you’re a gifted communicator.
Or you can write in a way that makes thoughts come alive.
Maybe you have a strong back and can move heavy boxes.
Maybe you can coach soccer like nobody’s business.
Maybe it’s working with electricity that you’re skilled at.
Maybe you have every Friday night free.
Maybe you can think “systems” in a way that structurally organizes chaotic programs.
Maybe you’re a good painter.
Give away your best for free.
Your “best” is a gift. Especially when you’ve been trained (through school and/or practical on-the-job training) to use that gift more effectively. It’s a blessing God’s given you. There’s nothing wrong with making money doing what you’re good at, but God’s not just given you your gift to make money. He’s given you your gift to bless others and make a difference.
It’s time you stopped complaining about not knowing what you can do.
It’s time you stopped making excuses for not doing.
It’s time you stopped bemoaning a lack of resources.
You’re good at something. I guarantee that you are. There’s something that you do that comes easily for you, but others just can’t seem to pull it off.
God’s given you that gift to serve others.
Find a way to start using it.
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. – 1 Peter 4:10
