We all like to be used from time to time in some capacity where our talents, whatever they may be, can benefit someone or something. As a musician, I like it when someone asks me to be a part of a group who just want to use their talents for no other reason than to bring joy to someone else. My father was a special man who had many talents, but would never seek the spotlight. He was content to allow others to rise to the occasion, but he also enjoyed when they asked him to preach, play his alto sax, or strum the guitar. We all like those moments when people wish to use us, but we grow weary of it after a while when we realize they are only using us.
