God endows us with gifts so we can make him known. God endues the Olympian with speed, the salesman with savvy, the surgeon with skill. Why? The big answer is to make a big to-do out of God. Brandish him. Herald him. Magnify your maker!

Scripture says, “If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion for ever and ever. Amen” (1 Peter 4:11).

So exhibit God with your uniqueness. When you magnify your Maker with your strengths, when your contribution enriches God’s reputation, your days grow suddenly sweet!

From Mike: We have too many people in the world today who don't even come close to 1 Peter 4:11 especially our leaders. They seem more interested n glorifying themselves. It's up to us as everyday Christians to make 1 Peter happen! You say that's not your responsibility or that's not your talent. You do not have to be a pulp preacher to minister to others so think about that when it's your turn to stand before God and give an account!
