WHAT ARE YOUR GIFTS?
Virginia Garrison, Director of Retention Services
We all have gifts… things we are good at doing… or that we have the potential to do well but haven’t fully developed. What are your gifts? Do they need development?
Do you like to work with people? Are you good at organizing? Maybe you have the gift of administration.
Are you compassionate? Do you like to help and encourage others? Maybe you have the gift of mercy and service.
Are you a “take charge” type of person? Are you good at communicating? Maybe you have the gift of leadership.
Are you good at explaining things to others and enjoy seeing them learn? Maybe you have the gift of teaching.
Do you involve yourself in ministry? Would you like to use that gift to its fullest?
There are too many possibilities to list in this short message. Whatever your gifts may be, wouldn’t you like to develop them further? Wouldn’t you like to use them to the best of your ability? Completing your degree could help you do that! Belhaven University offers many options, including business management, social services, health administration, leadership, Christian ministry, Biblical studies, teacher education, etc.
Why not give yourself the “gift” of education and reach your full potential? In doing so, you will also be helping others who will benefit from receiving what you have to give!
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.
1 Peter 4:10
