1 Timothy 4:14, 16
Do not neglect the gift you have. Attend to yourself and to your teaching; persevere in both tasks, for by doing so you will save both yourself and those who listen to you.
What is your gift? We all have some talent or ability which God has given us to help ‘build of the kingdom of God’…or in other words…to make the world a more loving, merciful, forgiving, just and compassionate place. St. Paul encouraged Timothy to persevere in developing, nurturing and using his talent for teaching the Good News. But he also reminded Timothy to attend to himself…in other words…take care of himself. Be good to yourself. Attend to your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs. Because if you are exhausted and depleted of energy…how can you give anything to another? Take time to work, rest, pray and play. Then, when you use your gifts and talents for God’s purposes…not only will you be on your way to “wholeness” (saved) but you will help others on their paths to wholeness as well. If we all lived in this manner…what a glorious change would take place in the world. It’s a team effort!
