Speaking of gifts and talents, all of us in the family of God are gifted and talented. Sure our gifts and talents differ in both content and extent -but none the less each one of us is uniquely shaped by God. Scripture makes this clear in Ephesians 2:10 where we read, "For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." The word "workmanship" is a translation of the Greek word "poiema" from which we get our English word "poem." God is the one who has crafted us (and is continuing to craft us according to Philippians 1:9!) in order to use our gifts and talents to do the good works which he has laid out for us to do. You see, our gifts and talents (i.e. our SHAPE) is to be used for God and His kingdom. So - how are you currently using your SHAPE to serve the Master who is crafting you?
