I Peter 4:10
“As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.”

No one can get very far without being of service to those around them. Especially so in business, you will not get very far if you are just out to take, take, take, and never give. Even the most greedy people on the earth provide goods and render services to customers and clients, however badly they may treat them. It is good stewardship of your abilities and talents to use them to better your fellow man. This is an important principle to be understood. Not only in business and our work lives, but also in our service to the Lord.

The Apostle Peter tells us to use our gifts and talents to serve one another. Paul tells us to do whatever that may be, as if we are doing it unto the Lord (Colossians 3:17). Serve others with your gift. If you want to live a fulfilling and happy life, serve others.  

Who are you ultimately using your gifts for? Everybody has them, they are without repentance. Everyone possesses gifts and talents, though some may have them buried or less visible than others. Whatever they are, give them back to the Lord.

Brother Branham was a perfect example of selfless giving. He gave his entire life to the service of the Lord and look at how God used him. He was chosen by God to be the prophet of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelations 10:7, and we can see that by the life he lived. He gave all that he had back to Christ. It should be then as Paul said in I Corinthians 11:1, “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” This is not just a good suggestion, it is a duty of the Believer to give their gifts and talents back into the Lord’s service, as a good steward of the Grace of God who gave you them in the first place.

Give what you have to serve your fellow brothers and sisters. Give what you have back into the Lord’s hands, and He will do extraordinary things with however much of yourself you give back into His service. Be a good steward of the Grace of God in your life.

I'm your brother, and I love you with the dearest of Christian love. I do that with all my heart. And I—I… God forbid that I'd ever be a deceiver. Oh, I—I'd rather go on home right now to glory then—and take my reward there, than to try to be here, to try to be a deceiver, or do something that was wrong. Oh, no, friend. I—I'm your brother. And I'm telling you the truth, as my heart before God. If I—if I found grace in your sight, you believe me tonight as God's prophet. As far as the Divine gift, that's the truth. Here lays the Bible. It's over my heart. With all my heart that's the truth. See? That's the truth. It's a Divine gift that was given to me, unmerited. I had nothing to do with it. It come by God's sovereign grace when I was born. I had it all my life. Gifts and callings are without repentance. Now, I use the gift, just like a talent God give me, like the preacher preaching, the singer singing. I do this for what? For the glory of God to try to let the people know I'm telling the truth. That's right. And the Bible confirms just exactly what I'm saying, just the same as your pastor preaching out of this Bible and God confirms it with His Word.
