And the Lord said, Who then is the faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall set over his household, to give them their portion of food in due season?
And having gifts differing according to the grace that was given to us, whether prophecy, (let us prophesy) according to the proportion of our faith;
or ministry, (let us give ourselves) to our ministry; or he that teacheth, to his teaching;
or he that exhorteth, to his exhorting: he that giveth, (let him do it) with liberality; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness.
Let a man so account of us, as of ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.
