One of the most important things about teaching is learning to recognize the natural strengths of each individual to help them develop their God given talents into maturity. Have you ever seen the difference between an artist that went to school to learn how to paint verses an artist that was just born with a natural gift of God?
Their is a distinct difference in the expression of the art between the two because you can feel the difference in the depth of the painting in the one born with the natural gift verses the one that was taught by man. It is the passion behind our goals that shows the depth of our picture in life and when we overlook those with natural gifts of God due to rules and procedures is when we so often miss what God has right before us.
In today’s society many have become seriously blinded to the natural gifts of God in others due to their own fears and the amount of emphasis being placed on the accomplishments of man instead of seeing the accomplishments of God. It is very easy in our human nature to become blind when we place so much emphasis on the guidelines to follow along with the sins of others as the Pharisees did in the Holy Bible and Jesus warned us of this in order for us to maintain our Balance in life. The Lord gives us guidelines to follow but He also taught us how to be alert to our surroundings because we never know where God could be working next.
There is no better blessing in this world than to know that we played a roll in the Kingdom of God by helping His children discover who they are as child of God and develop the talents which the Lord provides to further His will and not our own. I challenge you to look beyond what you see in the physical to recognize what can take place in the spiritual to further the Kingdom of God for our children’s future…amen
For we never know what God has right before us until we learn to look for God instead of man…
