What is the best thing you bring into the Kingdom of God? Is it your talent? Is it your mind? What is the thing you can uniquely offer God as He is turning this world upside down? Is it your background or your experience? What is the thing in you God is most eager to put to use? Is it your knowledge or your courage?
Nah. It’s none of those things. You may have tons of distinctive and amazing things to offer and I’m sure God has plans for all of the things that make you the unique person you are. I know He made you on purpose with certain gifts and qualities only you have, and every single one of those things is important, but none of those things are the best thing you have to offer God.
The very best and most important thing you have to offer is your need. I know that sounds weird, but it’s true. The thing God most wants from you is your weakness, your inability and your dependence on Him. He wants to turn the world upside down and He wants to do it by empowering the powerless and strengthening the weak. God wants the world to know that you don’t have to be beautiful, talented, powerful or smart to have a life that means something. God wants the world to know that He is the one changing the world and there’s no better way to show that than to offer Him your need.
