Ability or Availability
From John Fischer’s post of March 25 by the same name
God doesn’t want your ability as much as he wants your availability.
We shine in our abilities; God shines in our availability.
Our ability makes us strong; our availability makes us vulnerable.
People are impressed with our abilities; God is impressed with our availability.
Practice improves our ability; faith improves our availability.
Our ability makes us popular; our availability makes God popular.
Not everyone is able; but anyone can be available.
Our ability draws on our natural talents; our availability draws on our spiritual gifts.
Ability can put us in the way; availability keeps us out of the way.
Our ability is fine; our availability is better.
God teams up with our ability; He gets inside our availability.
These are all reasons why God doesn’t want our ability as much as he wants our availability.
