ECCLESIAE THOUGHT (WEEK 10) “DISCOVERY”

“Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”

_ Brent Hardesty

DISCOVERY

Archaeology is a dirty job, but somebody has to do it. By the way, have you ever met an archaeologist who found anything without digging to find it? The great archaeological discoveries didn’t just fall out of the sky. Someone dug them up. They discovered where the hidden treasures were and then committed themselves to uncovering them. Just think, without digging, King Tut’s tomb would just be another basement apartment! The archaeologists who found the tomb made their outstanding discovery only after a diligent search.

You can make a diligent search of your life. There are things about you that will never be discovered until you start digging. For example, you may have hidden talents and abilities. You may have the talent to be a great musician, the ability to be a best-selling author, or the interest and skills to be a renowned computer programmer. Perhaps you have those talents and don’t know it. Start searching by trying new things, practicing the things you can do, and being open to using your abilities.

The talents you discover may be your own.
