"Faithful People Serve Others"
“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
God blesses us with gifts. He uses the gifting of those gifts to test our unselfishness. Who will we use them for, ourself or others?
Faithful people don’t live for themselves. They realize that the talents God gives them are not for their own benefit. They’re to make the world a better place.
You are the steward of your talents. God is watching to see if you use what He gave you effectively on earth. If you use them more effectively on earth He says He’s going to give you more responsibility in heaven.
That’s why God doesn’t just remove us from earth immediately. It’s our testing ground to see how we will grow into the person He wants us to be.
What we have here is a temporary thing; what we receive in heaven will be eternal.
Peace in the Lord,
