Sunday Reflection: Be Used
Working as an Admin Assistant, in my younger years, I was responsible for assigning and managing student helpers, for our office. There were things we needed to consider as in the age and character of a student. When I became the one who chose the chosen, I added my own criteria to the list. I wanted students who were the “popular” and "not as popular" kids from our school. I also wanted students who were outgoing and those who were shy.
And…I wanted to pair the opposites together, in their assigned hour.
It was a challenge for me to direct the daily activities of completely different personalities, together. That's when I decided to let God use their own gifts to figure it out and I stepped back. Who could have imagined that an introverted male student paired with a beauty queen, who had a kind and supportive heart, would get along so well and build each other up? Or what about a shy girl paired with a stronger personality girl? They became friends! Not best friends, but friends.
God often uses us to complement another even if it seems impossible. Be used!
