Romans 12:6: “We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.”


Devotional:   The world needs us.


How cool is it that the same God who created mountains and oceans and galaxies looked at you and thought the world needed one of you, too. (author unknown)


Recently, the news has been all about this week’s upcoming total solar eclipse, so we’ve been focusing a bit on the magnitude of our universe. Doing so has made me feel really, really small. Besides, it’s chilly, raining and the Iowa Hawkeyes lost to South Carolina this afternoon so I’m in a funk and finding it difficult to feel needed today, the day (Sunday) I usually write my weekly devotion to share with my church family. Yet, when thinking about the sermon Pastor Dana delivered this morning, I realize I am needed to share God’s story in whatever ways I can. We all are needed to use our God-given gifts and talents to share our faith with others. The world needs us.


One of my gifts is an ability to put my thoughts into words in such a way that my message gets through to the reader. At least I hope it does. That’s why when Pastor Dana suggested a while back that the weekly devotionals I had been preparing for our prayer group be shared with our church family via the Parish Visitor and website, I agreed.


We all have personal gifts and talents of one kind or another to be used. If we pray to God, He will direct our path on how to use whatever talents He has given us. It can be a smile or lending an ear, providing a meal or transportation, sharing our personal faith with someone and so much more. It is so heart-warming to witness others at church sharing their talents within our church family; leading Sunday School, holding leadership positions on the church council and WELCA, volunteering for coffee hour or special events, providing music, participating in worship and so much more. The world needs us!


Let us pray:   Dear Lord, help me to share with others the good news of Your love, mercy and grace by using the talents, time and other gifts you have given me because I have come to realize the world needs me and the world needs us!   


In thy Holy Name I pray, AMEN.
