People’s God-given gifts are meant to be shared with those around them, Pastor Rick Warren says.

The senior pastor of Saddleback Church in Orange County, California, explains in his Daily Devotional on Thursday that the purpose of gifts is to share them, pointing to 1 Peter 4:10 which reads: “God has given each of you a gift from His great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.”

The megachurch pastor goes on to say that when Christians use their talents to help others, they are glorifying God.

“God wired you to make a contribution. God did not give you your talents and abilities for your benefit. They are for the benefit of other people, and their talents are for the benefit of you,” Warren says, noting the unique talent a mechanic has at fixing a car, or an accountant with managing money.
