Yesterday I wrote about how the left is trying to demonize the late Rush Limbaugh, but largely failing in their efforts. I pointed out that this reminds us of how we need to live our lives in such a way that no one who wants to oppose Christians can make a logical case against us.
I want to use Rush as an example again today. One of El Rushbo’s favorite ways to describe himself was, “Talent on loan from God.” Long-time listeners often heard him use this phrase on the radio. Only those who are blinded by their hatred for Limbaugh could fail to see that he had his tongue placed firmly in cheek as he uttered those words. However, Rush had a healthy confidence in his abilities and showed a willingness to give God credit where credit was due.
We need to be aware that whatever talents we have are given to us by God, and they are to be used for his glory to build up his kingdom.
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.”—1 Peter 4:10-11.
