Excelling in Nothing

At the Fourth of Philippians, the apostle Paul expressed faith that he could do all things the Lord expected of him as his Master strengthened him to do them. The same is true of us also, though each possesses one or more areas of expertise, and all these are necessary for the optimum function of the Body of Christ. At First Corinthians Twelve, Paul used the physical body to illustrate this point. No part of the body may regard itself of greater importance, and none should regard himself as unimportant, either. The Parable of the Talents in Matthew Twenty-Five indicates that the Lord knows what the ability and potential is of everyone in His service. It is wisdom to seek His guidance in discovering one’s preeminent talent, if it, or they, have not already become clearly understood. It is destructive to an individual’s natural abilities to neglect them while pursuing that for which one is unsuited. Pursuing that for which one is unqualified or untalented may result in excelling in nothing.
