Today's Gospel was about the talents . . . .
You know, teaching is a very valuable and special gift. We are blessed to have some very talented teachers. Some are great in a classroom. Some are great at Youth Ministry. Some are great at the Sunday School classes they teach. Some are great examples of goodness and kindness (they do not have a "teaching" job, they are assigned to something else).
First, I'd like to pause for a moment and thank God for the gifts He's given us in our awesome Community! Thank you, Lord, for how you have used us over the years to bring your love and truth to SO many people (for almost 300 years now!). May you continue to use us for Your Glory!
For those of you who are not in our Community, we thank God for your gifts and talents too! No gift is too small. All gifts are to be used to build up the Kingdom of God. If you are a mother or father, remember how important it is for you to teach your children the ways of God. Remember how important it is for you to spend time with your children, to be a good example for them, to love them no matter what, to pray for them, and the list goes on. Little eyes are watching you -- no matter who you are, you are a teacher!
God bless you all! You are in our prayers. Pray for us too!
