When we selected our interns for this spring we asked them to think of a gift or talent they could use to share the Gospel with the people of Costa Rica. They decided to use their artistic talents to hold art classes at Pura Vida Missions. Every class revolves around a painting or drawing of a particular story from the Bible. You might think, “That’s so simple.” Guess what, you are right. It’s been simple, fun and effective.
Paul writes in Romans 12:3 “For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.”
Alyssa and Emily have taken one small talent, one small gift, one small measure of faith and they are using it for the glory of God. They are teaching people about the beauty and wonder of the Lord with a little time, canvas, and paint. They may not be painting the Sistine Chapel but the colorful and creative gifts they share will live in the hearts of those who receive them forever.
What is ONE small gift, talent or measure of faith that God has given you? How can use it for the glory of God today?
