Romans 12:3b-5 Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ's body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to eachother.
I love this! Just love it... these verses free me to be myself!! To be the person God made me to be. These verses teach me ( you must read all of Romans 12:1-21) that what I can do matters! Just like my thumbs are important to my body and my heart is important to my body. My fingernails protect my fingers. It all matters!! So I matter to the body of Christ. My hugs, I love to hug just in case you don't know that about me!! Those hugs matters. I love arts and crafts... those things matter when I get to give them to others!! I am not great at teaching...on and I can not, and you don not want me to sing!! Addressing an envelope freezes me somehow...but I can make a card pretty...and give it to someone that doesn't freezes at addressing that envelope. God made me, God made each of us who we are, with the talents we have.... we are called to love others and we can love others with the talents God gave us!! Another thing I am good at is managing money... putting it in words that make it seem possible, not overwhelming. My friend Tammy is good at teaching, she puts her all into a lesson. Lisa is good at organizing and motivating and Mrs. Kay can pray like nobody I have ever known. But I am the hugger of the group...and that matters!! We all matter!! Each and every one of us matter!! What is it that you do? What are you good at? No matter how small it seems to you, it is huge to someone else!! Use it for God!!
