Making Your Life Count

"Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might."1

Everybody is good at something … even the person who said he was a good example of what not to do!
Seriously, what is it you like to do best? Even if it is only one talent, start putting it to good use today—right now. And then get the training you need to sharpen that talent and ask God how you can use it to serve him and help others so you can make your life count for something worthwhile.
Don't wait for opportunities to fall into your lap—they may or may not come. Make your own opportunities. If you find a need, meet it. If you find a hurt, heal it.
With God's help you, too, can make your life count for something truly worthwhile for time and eternity.
Suggested prayer: "Dear God, again today I commit and trust my life and way to you. What can I do for you today? I'm available; please use me to help a wounded soul along the way, to bring a smile to a saddened heart, to give comfort to a lonely child, encouragement to a struggling teen, a sandwich to a hungry man. Whatever it is, please use me today to be 'as Christ' to every life I touch. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus' name, amen."

1. Ecclesiastes 9:10 (NIV).
