1 Peter 4:10-11 states, "As each has received a gift, employ it for one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who utters oracles of God; whoever renders service, as one who renders it by the strength which God supplies; in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen."
I have been asked the question that if you don't love yourself, how can you love others? This is the basic point St. Paul makes that Husbands love their wife as they represent Christ and the Church. (Ephesians 5:25) It also follows closely the golden rule, "So whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them; for this is the law and the prophets." (Matthew 7:12)
With this in mind, we should always take self inventory looking to improve our potential, knowing and learning our Faith.
1 Peter 5:1-3 states, "So I exhort the elders among you, as a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ as well as a partaker in the glory that is to be revealed. Tend the flock of God that is your charge, not by constraint but willingly, not for shameful gain but eagerly, not as domineering over those in your charge but being examples to the flock."
