Attachments are often deemed optional accessories because they are not necessary to the primary function of something. They do, however, serve a purpose and as such share the utility of the thing to which they are attached. For example, a church hymnal is an accessory. Well, that's not a good example because many churches do not see the need for a book or for hymns for that matter. Then there are choir robes, but not sure of their function except to keep singers warm and look good. Still, not every church sees the need for them, or the choir either.
If asked what's going on in church, most people would relate what happened yesterday behind the closed doors of a church building. But the fact is, that church begins this morning, on Monday extending through next Sunday night. Pastors traditionally use the week to prepare for the next Sunday with staff to serve the church body. But every member, including the pastor and staff, is expected to pray, make disciples and serve other believers seven days a week unless physically hindered. So, are you an expendable accessory or a vital component of the body?
You given me skill, Lord, and I choose to use it for Your glory.
