The Principle of Human Talents

“God has blessed every person with certain physical skills and /or abilities, and each person participates in kingdom building when those skills and abilities are used to declare Jesus Christ.  When the soloist sings, or the pastor preaches, or the athlete uses his or her sport as a platform for serving the purposes of God, each is fulfilling God’s will as it pertains to his kingdom purposes.  To fail to use what God has given us through our physical creation denies the very order and sovereignty of God.”
