What is your core?

Have you considered what your core contribution is? No doubt this would be in concert with your talents and with the grace that is available to you. Sometimes we think that we can do anything. This is unrealistic.

God gives each us specific grace and talents for specific objectives and responsibilities.

I want to encourage you to spend some time thinking about your core contribution. What could it be? What should it be?

The LORD will make your life consequential as you follow Him.  A part of following Him, following Wisdom, is to not to run wildly, or swing randomly, but to focus your life and your resources for maximum impact.  God will show you how to focus on His grace and what He has imparted to you in a way that will accomplish maximum results.  This kind of life is pleasing to God.

Blessings to you in your pursuit of Him!
