Each of us is given a spiritual gift so that we can help one another. A spiritual gift is an empowerment from God to give us a special way of serving others. 1 Corinthians 12:7 (ESV) says, “To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.” You must begin to think about your intelligence and creativity as a gift from God for the betterment of your world. This approach will help you remain grounded and humble. God gives grace to the humble. And he will help you to maximize your gifting.
A spiritual gift from God is not intended for personal gain. A wise man once said, “Intelligence is not a privilege, it’s a gift. And you use it for the good of mankind.” Your world is in a state of darkness. With very little or no enlightenment. God then gives you a gift in accordance with his will for your world. This gift empowers you to solve the problems in your world. There are generational problems; the desolation of many generations that you can solve in a few weeks. These are the dimensions of creativity and intelligence you could be operating in. However, as long as you are obsessed with making money for yourself. You will soon become puffed up, and will lose your way.
You must think about your gift of creativity, inventiveness and intelligence as something sacred from God. It is a gift in the same way we consider prophecy, healing or word of knowledge as spiritual gifts. If you would consider it greedy and selfish for someone to use their prophetic gift for personal use. Then you should also be mature enough to use your own gifts for the benefit of the larger society. Do not create for your private enjoyment. Engage your creative faculties for the greater glory of God, and to the benefit of your world.
