Gifts Given By God

Whatever we are doing, where ever we are going,
Taking the time to speak God's message is good.
Some will listen but most probably will not care,
We keep trying and doing things that we should.

God gives us gifts to use for Him all of the time,
We might be able to sing with sweet angelic voice.
Teaching may be the gift He has graciously given,
Or be able to play an instrument of our choice.

Prophesy, preaching, writing, or whatever the gift,
Give fully and completely back to the one who gave,
The gift to you in the beginning for you to freely use
The Spirit of God may get through and be able to save.

Romans 12:3-8
New International Version (NIV)

Humble Service in the Body of Christ
3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. 4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your[a] faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead,[b] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.
