Gifted to Serve

Written by KCC Devotion Team  |  Found in: Community Service

"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)

Pastor Rick Warren describes each person’s God-given unique abilities, talents, and gifts as their SHAPE: spiritual gifts, heart, abilities, personality, and experiences. This bundle of talents sets you apart from other people. Pastor Warren also cautions us that our talents are not given to make us a lot of money or to fund our retirement but are for others as well. God gave our gifts and talents to use to bless and enhance the lives of other people. Likewise, He has given other people the things that we need, and they will use their talents to bless us. For example, those with gifts of teaching and crafting could volunteer their talents with the elderly, at a school, or a daycare by facilitating small group activities with arts and crafts projects. Service to others is important to God, and the more we serve, the more gifts He will give us to use as we serve others.
