"Mommy, I have a dance for you," my daughter told me. She performed pirouettes and arabesques, and twirled her way across the kitchen floor. She held nothing back as she performed her ballet for me as a birthday gift from her heart.
Isn't this how we should be as we present our gifts to the Lord? Carefree, full of love, and from the heart? There's a freedom in knowing that if I present my talent to my heavenly Father as a gift of worship, He will not reject me. In fact, I imagine His reaction to be like mine to my daughter's dance - full of joy and delight.
He gives us talents not only to minister to the world, but also as a way to worship Him. As long as I use my talent and present it with love, I'm not only obeying His will for my life, but I'm also worshipping Him.
