Find your lane.

Each of us has different gifts given to us by God.  Today’s scripture is about a conflict that arose.  While the disciples were busy sharing the good news, Greek-speaking Jews accused them of ignoring the needs of widows in the community.  Realizing they couldn’t do everything, the apostles chose seven men to help them deal with the issue in their ministry.  The solution pleased everyone.  Some served the widows, while others continued to devote themselves to prayer and spread God’s word.

None of us can do everything.  God equips us for our role in life.  Defining your passion helps determine your groove.  I’ve always wanted to write, but I didn’t pursue the passion until my fifth decade.  Writing my first book on prayer was something I couldn’t accomplish alone.  Editors, artists, photographers, lawyers all helped me create the finished work.  Each of us had a different purpose on the same project.

Do what you do.

Finding your lane means understanding your gifts.  If you know that you can’t cook, then don’t offer to serve in the kitchen.  However, if you love cooking, help feed those in need.  Some people sing others play instruments, while others run the lights.  No one does everything on their own; we all need help.

Billy Graham, the famed pastor of the last century, filled stadiums with over 200 million people.  Even though his name is the one remembered, countless people helped make those events a reality.  Janitors prepared the venues; organizers promoted the event, greeted people, and helped them find their seats.  Not one event did Billy do on his own; many served namelessly to help spread the gospel’s good news.

Find what you love, then do it for God.  Whether you write notes to people suffering, take meals to the sick or lend an ear to someone who needs to talk, all of these things serve God. Find your lane, then move forward, full speed ahead.

Lord, thank You for giving us purpose.  Forgive us for thinking we don’t have anything to share.  Help us today find our lane; show us where you want us to serve.  Help us grow the kingdom with the gifts and talents You’ve given us.  All glory is Yours.  IJNIP.  Amen
