1 Peter 4:10

THE OUTWARD LIFE OF A STEWARD
Using Your Talents

As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

In First Peter 4:10 we are told, “As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God (NASB).” Whatever talents the Lord has entrusted to us, we are to employ them to serve others. We must be continually asking, “Lord, how do you want me to use these talents that you have given me to serve others and to bring You glory?” Unbelievers routinely use their talents to serve and glorify themselves. But as believers we understand that our talents are not self-made, they are God-given. So we should always remain both humble and grateful for the special gifts He has given to us and anxious to use them to honor and serve our King and His Kingdom. Think about it
