“What Does the Lord Require of You?” CCS 580
You are a beloved child of God. God loves you for who you are. Think about that as you create a picture of what you look like to God. Where is the light of God in you? Is there one part of you that is more aware of God’s light? Where are the gifts God has generously given you? What opportunities are there for you to share those gifts in God’s purposes?
Parable of the Talents
Doctrine and Covenants 119:8b
“I’m Gonna Live So God Can Use Me” CCS 581
Sometimes it feels prideful to say we are good at something. Yet, we proclaim that God has given us gifts. Identify gifts that you believe you have been given. Think about the parable of the talents (Matthew 25:14–18). Which gifts have you increased? How have you done so? Is there a gift you have buried? What motivated you to bury the gift? What might be preventing you from increasing, enhancing, or developing that gift?
