We are commanded to be generous, to give, and help others. But often we become fearful that if we give, we will have less. We are tempted to believe that having more is achi...

Ever feel like you have nothing to offer? You want to be more but feel like less? Your lack of talents is holding you back from doing something big? Think like this and you’ll give up on God and settle for being stimulated and satiated by the world. What can a not-so-gifted-person do?

Rejection. Not being wanted. The truth is that we all need to be needed. God made us this way. But when we don’t feel wanted, we can make the mistake of forcing ourselves on others. But what if we are focusing on the wrong thing: being needed, when the answer is to focus on other’s needs.
