I would like to use this talent related opportunity concerning Dizmo (Baby Dee) to remind and encourage each of us on the matter of gifts and talents. I hope and trust that God will speak to each of us through this short message.
Whether you are a musician or an accountant, a teacher or a cook or in whichever fields, God gave you those abilities to serve others. Today’s verse says, “Each of you should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms” (1 Peter 4:10 NIV).
You are a manager of the gifts God has given to you. They may be great or small in your eyes, but they matter to God. “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful” (1 Corinthians 4:2 NIV). When God made you, he made an investment in you, and he expects a return on that investment.
Are you using what He’s given you for the benefit of others to make the world a better place? Or are you just using those talents to benefit yourself?
When God gives you a talent, he expects you to use it. It’s like a muscle. If you use it, it will grow. If you don’t, you’ll lose it. If you have a talent but are afraid to use it, or if you get lazy and don’t use it to benefit others, you’re going to lose it. Like the parable of the ten talents in Luke 19, if you don’t use what God has given you, he will take it away and give it to someone else who will.
But if you use your talents wisely, God will give you more. If you use your time wisely, God will give you more time. If you use your energy wisely, God will give you more energy. If you use your influence wisely, God will increase your influence. God will bless your level of faithfulness.
May God bless Dizmo (Baby Dee) and his friends
Lets encourage, support and develop Dizmo (Baby Dee) and other young people from all corners of this blessed country Zambia into channels of blessings to all nations through their God given gifts and talents. Remember this: When we use our God given gifts and talents faithfully, we can fully contribute positively to the development of our communities and beyond
God bless you all as you use your gifts and talents to His glory,
Lazarous Mankel Chongo
