Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

– 1 Peter 4:10-11 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

You have a unique gift that was given by God to serve others and make them more like Jesus. How can you know what gift you have? One way is to observe what irritates you. What may be easy for you may not be easy for others, and the irritation that you feel is a clue toward a skill that glorifies God. So don’t fall into criticism; use your gift as a faithful steward of God’s grace and bless those around you.
