“John replied, “No one can receive anything unless it has been given to them from heaven.” John 3:27
It’s easy to take ownership of our own “goodness.”
Perhaps you are a great writer, crafter, organizer, marketer, money saver, golfer, singer, etc. It’s fun to be good at something, but it doesn’t come from you. You cannot say, “I did this…” or, “it’s because of me…” Everything you have is from God. We all work together as puzzle pieces to make something for His glory.
You may think you are insignificant because your piece isn’t as visible or alluring as some other pieces, but it’s just as important.
You may think you are more significant because your piece is more visible and alluring then some other pieces, but it’s not more, it’s all for the same purpose.
He gives the gifts, He takes them away. It’s all for Him.
Don’t claim ownership of the good or great or notable things you do. Don’t consider yourself mediocre if your part is more hidden. It’s all Him.
It’s all for Him.
