God-Given Talent

"Each one should use whatever gifts he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in it's various forms." 1 Peter 4:10

"You are a manager of the gifts God has given you. They may be great or small in your eyes, but they matter to God. Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful." Corinthians 4:2



This is a cake my very talented Momma made for my cousin Payton Elizabeth's 2nd birthday. The theme of the party is Minnie Mouse. The bottom section is two 10 inch (2" deep) layers and the middle section is two 8 inch (3" deep) layers of pink lemonade cake (which is heavenly) covered in fondant. The Minnie Mouse hat on top is rice crispy treat that she shaped in a bowl and then covered with fondant as well. The bows and polka dots are all made out of her homemade fondant. 

Amazing, right? She is so incredibly gifted. Of course, watching her and my boyfriend, Gray, stay up all night last night perfecting it (he loves to cook, too) got me thinking about the way we should use our gifts and talents for the Lord. From encouraging others to playing the piano or singing to decorating cakes, there are so many things we can do with glorifying our Heavenly Father in mind. What can you do today to show others Christ through the talents He's given you?
