1 Peter 4:11

11 if words, let it be God's words; if help, let it be God's hearty help. That way, God's bright presence will be evident in everything through Jesus, and he'll get all the credit as the One mighty in everything - encores to the end of time. Oh, yes!

1 Peter 4:11 In-Context

9 Be quick to give a meal to the hungry, a bed to the homeless - cheerfully.
10 Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it:
11 if words, let it be God's words; if help, let it be God's hearty help. That way, God's bright presence will be evident in everything through Jesus, and he'll get all the credit as the One mighty in everything - encores to the end of time. Oh, yes!
12 Friends, when life gets really difficult, don't jump to the conclusion that God isn't on the job.
13 Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner.
