Whatever my position, status, or standing
Achievements, accomplishments, or recognition
Gifts, talents, or opportunities,
Each was a gift given by God.
Not deserved. Not my due. Not my earnings. A gift.
Vain means empty, wasted or useless.
If my position is not a means to glorify God, it’s useless.
If my achievements don’t bring honor to His name, they are empty.
If my opportunities don’t further His purposes, they are wasted.
I want to make sure His grace toward me was not in vain.
