Devotion for Saturday in the Fourth Week in Lent

For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them.

~ Romans 12:3-6

We all want to serve God by doing something important in His Kingdom. But He have given us different gifts, and all are important, even if some are more prominent and prestigious than others. Rather than using our gifts to glorify ourselves, God’s Word tells us to use the gifts He has given us to perform the functions we are assigned without judging ourselves better or more important than anyone else. Whether we preach to thousands, teach a handful of children, or perform mundane administrative tasks, we are no more or less important than any other servant of the Lord.

Thank You, Lord God, for the gifts You have bestowed upon each of us. Let us use those gifts to Your glory and take no pride in our position or our gift. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
