Purpose

Yesterday I shared some thoughts on the president’s remarks on business last week.  There is one thing that needs to be emphasized.  I was reminded of it this morning as I read through Psalm 18:2 – 3.
The purpose of His giving us gifts is to glorify Him not to take refuge in the gifts.
It would be easy to depend on the gifts, the opportunities, the nature, the drive that He has given us.  It would be easy to, after we have achieved some measure of success to take pleasure or glory or refuge in that which we have created.  Doing that ignores and does not align with the purpose that God intended when He gave us the gifts.  He gave them to us for His glory; to draw others to Himself.  If we take refuge in what we have created rather than in Him, we dishonor the work He has done in our lives.
