“This verse means a lot for me as I am reminder that serve well with gifts God has given me and that it is His gift not mine.

Romans 12:6-7: 'In His grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So, if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speakout with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are teacher, teach well.'"
