Today's Inspiring Thought: Build Up the Body

If God has given you a ministry gift, or any gift for that matter, never forget the purpose--to equip or prepare God's people for service and for building up the body of Christ.

God's gifts are always meant to be graces received from him for the edification of the church. Oftentimes today, as in the early church, the misuse and misunderstanding of spiritual gifts can bring division--splitting up, rather than building up--in the church.

If God has given you a gift, be very careful how you use it. If you misuse it, you just might lose it. Remember the purpose for which it was given.
