If a man has the gift of speech or the gift of healing, if he has the gift of music or of any art, if he has a craftsman’s gifts upon his hands, all these are gifts from God.  If we fully realized that, it would bring a new atmosphere and character into life.  Such skills as we possess are not our own achievement, they are gifts from God, and, therefore, they are held in trust.  They are not to be used as we want to use them but as God wants us to use them; not for our profit or prestige but for the glory of God and the good of men.

William Barclay, The Daily Study Bible: the Letters to the Corinthians, The Westminster Press (1975), p. 12
