So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for those of the family of faith. (Galatians 6:10 NRSV)
On the trip home from the Nobel ceremonies in Stockholm, prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman stopped in Queens, N.Y., and looked up his high-school records. "My grades were not as good as I remembered," he said, "and my I.Q. was 124, considered just above average."

"He was delighted," reported his wife, Gweneth. "He said to win a Nobel Prize was no big deal. But to win it with an I.Q. of 124--that was something."

That is something. Richard Feynman did not let an average I.Q. hold him back. He took hold of the opportunities that life presented him and gave his best. He fought a good fight.

Are you taking hold of the opportunities that God has set before you?

Dear God, show me the way to fulfill your will for my life, as I serve you with joy. In Jesus name, Amen.
