What Good Would I Be?

From My Heart

Louise Gibson

author of Window Wonders

I am not like you, nor are you like me.

But God created both of us

to serve in our own capacity.

 

I can’t wish for your talents,

for they were given to you.

When God created the universe,

He knew exactly what we should do.

 

“But as God has distributed to each one,

so let him walk.”     1 Corinthians 7:17

 

For example:  In Argentina, everyone is required

by law to spend two years in military service.

One fellow showed up at the induction center

objecting, “What good would I be?  I have

no arms!”

 They put him in the army anyway. At basic

training camp the commanding officer said,

“See that fellow up there on the hill pumping water?

Go tell him when the pail is full.  He’s blind!”

    Louise, your words and thoughts are perfect! If each one could only see the gifts God has given them, and use them the way He wants, what a happy life we would have.

    This is so true Mrs Gibson. My cousin is a whiz at hand crafts, not so much on computer stuff. I am good with computers and awful with crafts. God made us unique for His glory.
