Service to God is not showmanship. Like it reads,it is SERVICE!
If you have the talent to sing,teach or occupy any position of leadership in service to the almighty,you should operate at a very high level of humility and love. Pride should not beset you because you’re not indispensable. You’re rather privileged to be who you are and you should be grateful for it!
If you ever think that you’re one and only and thus irreplaceable, the truth is there is someone out there who is better than you or has the potential to be better than you in service to God.
God has men and women programmed for service,you’re just privileged to be one of them and should you get too big for your purpose,there is always going to be another to take your place!
As for your talent,God ultimately owns them. And someday,you will give account of how they were used. In John 3:27(NLT), John said ‘No one can receive anything unless God gives it from heaven’. So the talents come from heaven,you do not own them,God does.
And as for accounts, you shall be rewarded according to your deeds as the Lord says in Revelation 22:12(NLT) ‘Look, I’m coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds’
So friend, what’s your deed in God’s service: a show or true service?
