These past few weeks I was in a dark place. The more comfort I sought, the more discontent I became. Tonight something occurred to me…what if discontent is my talent and God wants me to use it to grow closer to Him?
All my life I worried about the parable of the talents…I don’t have enough money to make a difference, my job is insignificant, etc. But what if our “talents” are the present moment and what we do with it is how we use the talent?
What if when I hate sweeping floors at work and I can’t fathom how sweeping floors glorifies God I am missing the point? What if it’s not the action itself as much as the discontent I have in doing it anyway that glorifies God?
What do you think a “talent” is? Could our struggles be talents?
