Romans 12:4-8

4 For as in one body we have many members and the members do not all have the same function, 5 so we who are many are one body in Christ and individually members of one another. 6 Having gifts differing according to the grace given to us, if it is prophecy, let us use it according to the proportion of our faith; 7 if it is service, let us use it in service. Let the teacher use his gift in teaching. 8 Let the exhorter use his gift in exhorting. Let him who gives do it in simplicity. Let him who manages do it earnestly. Let him who helps the needy do it cheerfully.

But he who does the will of God endures forever.
