For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith

The Bible says, "For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man
that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to
think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the
measure of faith" (Rm. 12:3).
I remember studying this passage in the preaching school when the instructor
said that this verse contains four rules for living. Here they are:

#1 You have to know who you are.

#2 You have to learn to accept who you are.

#3 You have to appreciate that you are who you are by God's grace.

#4 You have to use who you are to the glory of God.

So, who are you? You're a man, or woman. You have successes and failures,
joys and pains. You're normal, just like everybody else around you. If
you're a Christian, you were a sinner saved by grace through faith for a
high purpose of serving and glorifying God. That's the point or purpose of
who you are.

Have you accepted who you are and what you can do for Him? Don't try to be
somebody and something that you are not. Just be you, and use your talents,
as God authorizes of course, to His glory.

Whatever abilities you have, they are a result of the grace of God--they're
not solely based on you. Remember what Paul said, "by the grace of God I am
what I am."

Finally, it is a God-given privilege to be a servant in His kingdom--making
contributions when and where you can.

Spend some time today with Life's Operating Handbook and learn the rules for
living.


Have a great day!
