Don’t forget the purpose of spiritual gifts

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others,as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”(I Peter 4:10).

Oftentimes Christians forget what spiritual gifts are for. We sometimes think that they’re supposed to elevate us and make us more popular. But the gifts God gives us are not about us. They are given to us so that we can minister to others, not show off how good  Christians we are.

Be careful that you do not use your gifts and talents to glorify yourself. Instead, be ready and willing to serve God through the mundane. Follow Jesus’ example and wash each other’s feet.
