Nothing to brag about

I Corinthians 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?

Have you ever thought about the fact that you can do nothing that God didn’t give you the ability to do? Every ability, every gift that we have is from God. Since God gave it to us, we shouldn’t be bragging about having it. We didn’t earn it. We didn’t come up with it ourselves. God gave it to us.

Since God gave it to us, we should be using it for Him and His purposes. It is a gift from God for His service. I shouldn’t think like I am blessing God by giving Him something that is mine. I should rather remember that He gave it to me and I will honor Him with what He gave me.

Can you sing? Can you administrate? Whatever you can do it is to be used for Him. It not to be used to make you feel better about yourself or to think of yourself as better than others. He gave us what we have. We humbly serve Him with His blessings.
