We are supposed to be humble. We are not to think more highly of ourselves than we ought to. Romans 12:3 tells us that in no uncertain terms. But that is just the first half of the verse. The second half tells us that we are to think as to have sound judgment. Paul substantiates that exhortation with the data that God has allotted to us each a measure of faith. Peter picks this up in 1 Peter 4:10 – 11. He tells us we are to use our gifts that God supplies.
We have been given gifts by God for the purpose of building up the Body of Christ. Last time I checked God does not make errors. He gives us gifts and insights into His Word that we are expected to share. If we do not we rob the other members of the Body.
Both of us this morning benefited greatly from what our friend shared. He had no reason to apologize, rather he should give thanks with us for what God has done in his life.
