20 Bible Verses About Using Our God’s Given Talent
Today, we will be dealing with 20 Bible verses about using our God’s given talent.
YOU’LL GIVE ACCOUNT
Luke 16:10 “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. God is not looking for brilliant, indispensable men or women, he is only looking for those he can trust, those he can commit his work into their hands without fear of mismanagement.
God can trust you with a talent or gifts whether big or small, God has a purpose, he bestowed it on you for a reason. God can give you one talent or two, all he seeks is that you’re faithful with what he has given and on the last when he asks you to give an account, you’ll do so without any fear.
God can trust you with so little but he expects you to still use it to the glory of Him alone, some will say but I can only sing, write and dance. Remember, whoever is dishonest with little will not be trusted with much more. We will all give account in the end, on the last day we’ll all stand before the throne of God and tell him how we used our talent, gifts and wealth. I receive wisdom to use my little. I receive grace to be faithful in the master’s business. Amen. 20 Bible verses about using our God’s given talent has been collected in today’s topic.

Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
4. 1 Corinthians 12:1-8
Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans you were led astray to mute idols, however you were led. Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking in the Spirit of God ever says “Jesus is accursed!” and no one can say “Jesus is Lord” except in the Holy Spirit. Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord.

Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching.

Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ.
