woman offering small wrapped gift

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen (1 Peter 4:10-11). 

We all think that when someone gives us a gift it is for our own use, right? What if someday you receive a beautifully wrapped box and, upon opening it, you found a gift inside for you as well as another gift with someone else’s name on it? What would you do? Does that seem strange to you? Well, that is exactly how God’s gifts work for us. He gives gifts for giving.
