Use Your Gifts To Bless Others And Further His Kingdom

In summary of 1 Peter 4:10 it says, “God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts.  Be a good manager and generously use them to serve one another.”

Bottom Line:
God has provided you a gift from his diverse supply of spiritual gifts.  As a good steward we should use them to serve others.

What this means to me:
God has provided me with particular gifts/talents when I put my trust in him.  He has equipped me with these gifts from his great and diverse supply of spiritual gifts.  It is gifts I didn’t deserve, but He has given them to me to serve others.  I need to be a good steward and use them to bless others and to further his kingdom.  In order to be a good steward it is good to remind myself of what God has given me.  They are the things coincide with my heart, my abilities, my personality and my experiences.  I am responsible to use what he has provided and he will hold me accountable  It’s important for me to remember these gifts are not for my benefit.  As I reflect this morning, I remember that God has gifted me with the ability to teach / explain what I’m learning and to lead smaller groups/individuals.  I believe he has equipped me to work with and train others, help guide them.  He has also given me a bit of musical talent which I use to serve in the worship team.  I need to consider those that I can work with to help mentor and consider what I can do to lead a group of people to a closer walk with God.  As I am thinking through my list of those I can encourage, I can consider what I can do to help mentor them.
