Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. -1 Peter 4:10
You watched Peter and his friends argue over who was the greatest more than once. How proud you must have been when the Holy Spirit inspired him to write this verse later in life. He teaches us that you have gifted us so we can be a blessing to the people in our lives not so we can exploit them for self importance. Help me use my gifts to bless my life “teammates” and not waste my gifts on myself. Give my Christian family and friends the power to look beyond themselves to use their gifts to bless many people. You made your life count for everyone. Give me the will and ability to make mine count for several someones too.

You’ll never fit in if you don’t work at blessing others.
