We can look at people and admire their labors and works. An example is Michelangelo. Obviously God gave him a great artistic talent, and people still admire his work today. Musicians can turn music into art, and another example is dancing, you can be overtaken and moved to tears by a dance. Architecture is also a form of art, and sometimes it can take years to admire the work that was done by an architect. At the end of the day despite how amazing a person’s form of art or gifts may be the only thing that will count is what one did for God. Our talents are all just vanity, Ecclesiastes 1:2-3 “Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher. “Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.” What do people gain from all their labors at which they toil under the sun?” Are you using your gift for God’s glory? What counts on this earth is what you do for God when you use your gift, you want people to turn to God, not to you. It is okay to admire someone’s gift but remember only to worship God. Also, don’t forget the person who has that gift may be overwhelmed and they are taking all the glory, we can stop them and ask where they are at in their relationship with God. We want to ask you, are you okay? Maybe your marriage or family is falling apart? Where are you at with your relationship with God? If you are in a bad place, you can turn back to God and submit your gift under God’s authority and give all glory to God. We want to hear from you and how you are using your gift for the glory of God. Also shared in this segment: Van Gogh, Depression, Solomon, Temple, Repentance, T.D. Jakes, Mona Lisa.
