And as the servants of God appointed meetings, Satan and his angels
understood their business, and were on the ground to hinder the work of God,
and he was constantly putting suggestions into the minds of God's people. Some
he leads in one way, and some in another, always taking advantage of evil traits
in the brethren and sisters, exciting and stirring up their natural besetments. If
they are disposed to be selfish and covetous, Satan is well pleased to take his
stand by their side, ...

So it's no wonder that I get double (albeit selfish) pleasure out of knitting gifts for
friends and family. I get to choose beautiful yarn—sometimes luxury yarn that I
wouldn't buy for myself—and try out stitch patterns, color combinations, and
techniques that I might other— wise overlook. Left unchecked, my closets,
drawers, nooks, and crannies would overflow with more knit— ted sweaters,
scarves, hats, and socks than I could possibly wear. But by giving my handknits
as gifts, I can always ...

We may not get it initially, butI believe we get another opportunity to do so. Each
of us has a giftto offer. Romans 12:6 We just have to make sure that we give our
best and not be selfish with our gifts. I don't believe we were presented with a gift
or gifts to be selfish. God wants us to share. If we claim to be spiritual, we
received that gift from God. In other words, “we have not received the spirit of the
world but the spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely
given us.

If I really did have some significant gifts, how could I use them? More to the point,
how could I use them to help my friends? As different people in the group read
out what had been written on their sheets of paper, something very interesting
emerged. Nobody had the same gifts, the same strengths. It might sound silly, but
this possibility hadn't occurred to me before. Paul was an encourager,
relentlessly positive and full of faith. Nick was creative and inspiring. Sophie was
patient and ...

1596 could not mean that believers should desire the more prominent gifts, when
the whole chapter has just been confronting the fact that they have sinfully been
doing just that. Desiring a gift for selfish reasons is wrong, since they are
sovereignly given by God as He wills (vv. 7, 11, 18, 28). Therefore, this must be
rendered not as an imperative (command), but, as the verb form allows, as an
indicative (statement of fact), “You are desiring the showy gifts, wrongly.” The real
imperative is ...

There are those who use their gifts purely for selfish gain, growing in leaps and
bounds but ignoring the Body of Christ. There are those who recognize the
treasure in them but exploit it and give the glory to something else, telling of how
hard they worked or about the connections they had. Like the Israelites, many
forget that without the intervention of the Lord they would still have been slaves
trapped in Egypt. Where would they have amassed that much gold which they
had now ...
