Do you like to get gifts? Isn’t this more pleasant than having to shop and spend your own money on something for yourself? People who love you can buy for you the same things you can buy for yourself, but I give you gifts that are not available for purchase.
For your talents and particular spiritual abilities are gifts from me. They reside within you rather than being mere transferrable material possessions. This part of your identity enables you to serve me in special ways. Yet there is something even better than the gifts that I give. Godliness is better still, being profitable for all things.
