Stewardship: Week 1 - Devotion 1

“The Lord said to Moses, “When you return to Egypt, see that you perform before Pharaoh all the wonders I have given you the power to do. But I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go.” - Exodus 4:21

God has given out some pretty cool stuff to people throughout history. He gave Noah the ability to build a huge boat called the Ark, Joseph the ability to interpret dreams, and Moses the power to do some amazing things like turn a river to blood and call down a plague of locusts. Do you ever stop to think how different history would be if these men had decided not to use the special abilities God gave them?

So what does this mean to you? Sometimes being a good steward means to use what God has given you. Sure, you may not have the ability to interpret dreams or call down a plague, but you do have some special qualities God has given you and you alone. Think back to the closing activity in the stewardship lesson and the list you made of your talents, abilities, and spiritual gifts. Remember God has given you those things to be used for His glory.

What do you do with them? God has created you the way you are for a purpose. There are some things He needs done on this Earth, and He is looking to you to get the job done. Be a good steward by using who you are to glorify God.
