I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (2 Timothy 4:7 ESV)
Should one be proud or humble about their talents In today’s text II Timothy 4:7 The Apostle Paul lived his life and executed his ministry with discipline and determination. Perhaps he was motivated by the desire to receive from God the greatest of all commendations: “Well done, good and faithful servant.You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.” (Matthew 25:21 ESV)
Inactivity is not humility. It is rebellion; it is sloth; it is unfaith.
HUMILITY MEANS WE USE OUR TALENTS AND CAPABILITIES
God desires to be able to use us to His glory and for His purpose, and each of us should be aware of this. Humility is that we use our talents and capabilities under God’s direction and leading, giving Him the honor and glory for what is accomplished in and through our lives.“For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.” Romans 12: 3.
