What talents has God given me? How am I putting them to use? Am I using those talents for myself? For my own glory? Or to build the kingdom of God?
What I actually do, the actual actions does not determine whether I’m doing something for myself, or for the kingdom of God. What does determine it is the heart behind it. Whether it’s studying, running a business, playing an instrument, or anything someone can do, the heart can go either way.
I see myself hungering for achievements and self-actualization as people call it now and then. I used to a lot more, but now I know that what I really should be and do hunger for is the kingdom of God. Everything else is just given as a side blessing.
Matthew 6:33 - But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
I can testify to this.
Application: finish reading Luke
