During my college years I’ve had to write several reports, essays and papers. As I prepared to write my essays I was given instructions from my instructor. These instructions varied according to the activity. One requirement that was consistent for all of the multiple page papers I written was to give credit to the author of the information I included. My instructor required me to us a certain format. Two of those format are call American Physiological Association (APA) and Modern Language Association (MLA).
When you construct you document and you utilize those format and include research based well written information your professor is usually impressed and you feel accomplished. Well, I’ve realized that God have blessed us with gifts and we use them for our purpose. Many times when we become puffed up and we forget to give the credit to the author, creator and inventor. Don’t forget to acknowledge Him. All that we do for the good is though God.
He is not MLA or the APA of your gifts. God is the author of our purpose, He’s the potter when your ceramic (mind) was cracked, the life coach when you were lost and the doctor when your heart was broken.
“always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Ephesians 5:20 NIV
When you’re given credit don’t puff up and become vain because all good and great things come from God and you are a vessel He uses to bring light in the dungeon of life struggles.
It’s wonderful to get a “like” but don’t stop doing God’s will. If no one comments on your post it’s ok. Keep posting, if your post uplifts, then uplift. Just remember “I can do all things though Christ that strengthens me” Don’t forget give credit (praise).
Have a great evening
