Your Gifts Are for Other People
By Rick Warren

“God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.” 1 Peter 4:10 (NLT)

When we all use our abilities to help each other, God is glorified. The Bible says, “God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another” (1 Peter 4:10 NLT). 

God wired you to make a contribution. He didn’t give you talents and abilities for your benefit. They are for the benefit of other people. And, in turn, other people’s talents are for your benefit. 

I am so grateful for people who are talented in areas where I’m not. For instance, I’m grateful for accountants—because I’m lousy at accounting! And I’m grateful for people who have mechanical abilities. I couldn’t fix a carburetor if I had to. I wouldn’t even know where it is!

Everybody has different talents.

One talent God has given me is taking the Word of God and making it clear for other people to understand. When I use that ability, you get blessed. 

But here’s the point: You have talents too. How are you using them to bless others? If you’re not, when are you going to start? 

When you don’t use the talent God gave you, other people get cheated. But when you use your talent and abilities to serve others, they’re blessed, and God is glorified.
