Profit vs. Prophet

19 02 2013

man on a pile of money 2Today I want to talk about two words that sound the same, but are profoundly different, profit and prophet.

But, now, my brothers, if I come to you using tongues, what profit will it be to you, if I do not give you a revelation, or knowledge, or the word of the prophet, or teaching?

1Co 14:6 (BBE)

In this single scripture we see the two uses of profit and prophet. The first profit is focused on self-gratification, what we can get for ourselves. While the second prophet is about revelation, knowledge and teaching others.

One day all of us will have to give an accounting of how we used the gifts our gracious Lord has given us. What we do with our gifts is up to us. For generations my family used theirprophet being showered gifts to profit the devil himself. Everything they did, they did for themselves. I look at the amazing talents each of my parents had, my mother an artist/writer and my father a civil engineer and how they squandered these amazing gifts. I see what they could have done to further the plans of God instead of standing defiantly against him out of fear.

It is my prayer that each of us will evaluate how we use our gifts in 2013 and walk in the revelation, knowledge, and teaching of Lord as prophets of the Lord rather than looking only at the profit our talents can bring us.

Blessings and Complete Joy,
