This verse I'm sure holds many meanings, for me, or how this verse speaks to me is this: I must pursue my God given talents in order to live a bright Flourishing Life so that I can give God Glory.
I believe God gives us dreams, talents and passions which we are all uniquely gifted in for God's Glory. Essentially, pursuing one's gifting is true living- it may not always be the easiest path or widest route, but true living is taking risks and pursuing our unique true gifting and talents. It's like a ripple effect, when I'm actively working at my gifting in sport I'm happier, joy full, filled with LOVE....it's like a ripple effect that opens opportunities to give God the Glory and introduce others to Him by illustrating a Flourishing life.
It's not always easy to follow your heart in a society that pushes "box living", materialism, the dependence on money for comfort and 9-5 jobs. My security is in God. My security is in Jesus living strong in my heart. As a result of this, I have a burning desire to live effectively, passionately pursuing God's path for my life, which vitally means pursuing my talents even if the path is not always clear or visible, in faith I move forward......all I know is I must pursue my God given gift in sport for God's Glory.
God is truth. God, Jesus and Holy Spirit is Love.
