“Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
We all have unexplained riches within ourselves. Our Christian Faith asserts that an individual is of value, both to mankind and to God. What powers are there unexplored? What possibilities lie there unexpressed? If we regard ourselves as ‘heels,’ we imprison those potentials.
If we are willing to get by with the mediocre effort, we have narrowed the channel of our service. Whatever may be one’s condition in life, environment is not all there is to possibilities. There is the unmined ore of the inner life that may yield the gold of brilliant achievement and sturdy quality. These gifts are from God, they cannot be shown to the world if you are not willing to give out the best in you. Be not afraid to stir up the gift that is within you.
