“As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God” (1 Peter 4:10).
There is no more miserable life than the one preoccupied with its own existence; where all arrows point in and never out. We are created to serve; saved to serve; gifted to serve. With one trifling exception the world is made up of others. Thus, we should not be surprised that the fulness of serving God is never realized until we commit ourselves to their service.
