Word for the day by Christian Education Forum

Care for the people with special skills

Merry Jacob
St James MTC, NY

"The Lord has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all."

God is the creator and ruler of all v19. Everything He creates has a purpose. God has made each one of us in a way that we could best fulfill God’s will in the state we are in .We are vessels for God’s miracle to take place on earth. Exodus 4:11 says,"Then the Lord said to him, “Who gives speech to mortals? Who makes them mute or deaf, seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord?" God has blessed  special needs people with special skills and it is up to each one of us to help them to nurture and grow those skills .
Being a mother, I always wonder how do elementary teachers have so much patience and dedication to manage and teach a class full of kids for 6 hours? To take care of special needs children  and to develop their special skills we need to have patience, love and tender care
Each profession needs people with special talents. So we should use our talents in the best possible way to serve others. Finding our purpose in life by meditating on Him and discovering what is God’s will for us is very fulfilling.
Just not as a profession, using our  talents for the good of the  community especially  the children and elders with special needs is a blessing in itself and whatever we do ultimately should be for the glory of God.
Let us  always  thank God for everyone who dedicate their time and talents to take care of the  people with  special needs, who constantly needs  our love and compassion. Luke 14:12-13 says,He said also to the one who had invited him, “When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. 13 But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind."


Heavenly Father,   We pray for those who have special needs and need our love and compassion. Help us to fulfill Your will in our lives through the gifts You have given us. Amen.
God is the composer and we are His instruments. Let us do our best to bring Him glory!
