Each of you should use whatever gift
you have received to serve others.
1 Peter 4:10
Sadly today, God-given gifts tend, with a few notable exceptions, to be used for the benefit of the recipient. Although we may genuinely think of ourselves as not having any worthwhile gifts, we’d be wrong. I like the Contemporary English Version rendering of our text, each of you has been blessed with one of God’s many wonderful gifts. Likewise, the words of a song I heard many years ago resonate: ‘God has a plan for you, something NO-ONE else can do.’ So let’s use our unique gifts for the benefit of others and the glory of God!
