Ownership, Independence, Talents & Gifts, Our Will. When God gives to us, He wants us to give to others. When God calls, we should not give a negative response. God wants to push you to higher levels. Each of us has Talents & Gifts that the Lord has need of. Are we developing those and sharpening those skills and abilities? He wants to use them for His glory and His kingdom. As we give up our will, He gives to us. Scriptures (NIV): John 10:10, Acts 20:35b, Psalm 24:1, Psalm 138:1-4, Psalm 127:1-2, Proverbs 3:1-10, Luke 19:28-31, Luke 22:42.
