“Each man has his own gift from God; one has this gift, another has that.”
~ 1 Corinthians 7:7
This saying is true: “What we are is God’s gift to us; what we become is our gift to God.” Each of us possess special talents, gifted by God, that can be nurtured carefully or ignored. Our challenge is to make the most of our own God-given talents and to encourage our students to do likewise. One thing taught in the Holy Scriptures is that while God gives His gifts freely, He will require an accounting of them. Each man is personally responsible for his store, be it large or small, and will be required to explain his use of it.
This was discussed with the 7-12 student body on the first day of school. We are begotten with the charge to use our gifts wisely and for the uplifting of ourselves and others. This requires discipline. We want to use our talent to the best of our abilities and to do so for the betterment of our world and the glory of God.
Individually we’re unique, together we’re complete. God designed us to be separate puzzle pieces, yet one united picture when connected. This is what we’re striving for: doing our part, or our role, in God’s divine plan. May we all bring it forth!
GOD BLESS! GO T.E.A.M. OF DISCIPLINE!
