If you want to excel at something you have to work at it. You were put on this Earth for a vast number of tasks. Some tasks seem to be a natural gift. For me, it is reading people and having compassion. God gifted me with this. I don’t really need to work at it. I have a gift of listening to people and helping them. I have a gift of being able to pray.
It hasn’t always been this way. Or, I haven’t always used this gift. I was born a Christian seeking the goodness for others. I had to work at it. It works that way for most of our crafts. We need to work at it.
When you have an interest do you work at it? If you want to be a painter, do you work at it? If you want to be a blogger, or another type of writer, do you work at it? We need to practice our crafts. Use it, or lose it the saying goes.
And that brings me to another point. If you have a craft that will help others, are you willing to not work at it and lose it? What if your craft will help thousands, or millions of people? What if your craft opens the door for future generations? Are you willing to not work at it?
Practice your craft and use it to the best of your abilities so others may benefit.
