Dear Friends,

Abraham Maslow argued that one of the five basic needs all humans have is to feel secure. A part of the security people seek is to feel accepted and to have a purpose in life. Many people fail to find their purpose and therefore feel insecure.

Insecurity should not be a part of the Christian’s life. God has given each person a purpose. He has designed every individual with gifts and talents that He wants them to use to further His kingdom. Not everyone will have a task that places them on a stage or results in fame. But every task is important because it assigned by God.

On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable (1 Corinthians 12:22).

Christians must not compare themselves to others. They must focus on the task God has given to them and do it with passion and excellence. Every role is essential if the kingdom of God is to expand as God desires. You have an important part to play in accomplishing this goal.

Challenge for Today: Ask God what He wants you to do to expand His kingdom and then do it.
