Note 004: Why Do We Have Gifts?

The simple answer is: to build community

That’s right, God gives us each different gifts so that we have to come together and rely upon each other in communities and marketplaces.  Each of us is created to meet a particular need that exists around us.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.  (1 Peter 4:10)
