I am so thankful for Doctors. God has given special abilities to every single human being, and doctors are a perfect example of that. Yes, they have to take long hours of schooling, and they have to put in absurd hours to get their residency done, and they often do not have the bst of bedside manners (although mine mostly do). But the ability to diagnose, treat and get me back on my feet is remarkable. I have been sick for the last 5 days, and one trip to the doctor, I am back on my feet and ready to tackle the day.
But what about you? What God given ability do you have? Are you using it to the fullest? Maybe right now, while you are reading this blog, take a moment and jot down two or three abilities that you have been blessed with. Maybe they are musical, maybe logical, maybe oratory, maybe studious, maybe a wonderful personality, maybe a compassionate heart. Something you have that you don’t see a lot of other people displaying. And then instead of giving yourself a pat on the back, look up and thank God who gave you that ability. While you may have practiced hard to get where you are, it was God who planted the seed in you.
And then, as you go through your day, take notice of the God-given abilities of those around you, and let them know how much you appreciate that. You will brighten their day!
