Just as each one of you has received a special gift [a spiritual talent, an ability graciously given by God], employ it in serving one another as [is appropriate for] good stewards of God’s multi-faceted grace [faithfully using the diverse, varied gifts and abilities granted to Christians by God’s unmerited favor]. 1 Peter 4:10 Holy Bible, Amplified Version
I remember so many in my younger years bragging that they did not need anybody. They only lived for themselves. Now that they are older and in need of help there is no one to help them and they have no one to love them. They are depressed, lonely folks whose daily life is a living Hell of loneliness.
I have seen so many use their God given talents to help others. Now that they are older and in need of help they are surrounded with folks falling all over them helping them. Their is a contented life filled with love, joy and peace.
Jehovah has endowed each of us with a special talent that is to be used in the community. To neglect that talent or to use it for your own selfish ends is indeed a great sin in our Heavenly Fathers eyes. Those who neglect to use it for their God given purpose pay dearly for it in their elder years.
When you surround yourself with nobody but yourself you end up with nobody but yourself. Joseph a son of Jehovah.
“No man can compass the ends of life by drawing a little line around himself upon the ground. No man can fulfill his calling as a Christian by seeking the welfare of his wife and family only, for these are only a sort of greater self.” Charles Spurgeon
