Jeremiah 13: 1-11
This scripture is talking about how Jeremiah put on a linen belt, then put it in a crevice in the rocks. After many days, he dug it up and found it to be useless and ruined.
I think this could be talking about some talent or talents that we might have, and if we don’t use that talent, then we might as well not have it. It is of no value. If we have some kind of talent such as teaching, or singing, or just manual labor, we should put it to use. Our Journey to Bethlehem showcased many of the talents that members of our congregation have.
Prayer: Lord, help us to use our talents to the fullest, and for the good of others, and help us to not take credit for these talents, as they all come from You. Amen.
