Peter 4:10

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

Scripture Insights

As the son of a farmer, I had a front-row seat to watch Dad fix everything. When something needed a creative solution, he went to the barn, know just where to go, grabbed the right tool, and then knew how to use that tool to accomplish the task. I was always amazed at how the barn contained everything needed for the moment.

I am not a farmer, but I am a pastor. I don’t look in the barn, but I do look in the congregation. I continue to be amazed at how God has assembled all the gifts in his church needed to accomplish the task at hand. We each play a vital role in this beautiful picture of the church.

May we trust that God has given us what we need. May we be faithful stewards when called to do our part in serving those around us.

Today’s Prayer

Father, may we be faithful to steward the gifts you have given us. With your creativity, please help us serve those around us, distributing grace as you graciously distributed to us.
