Does the bible say anything about God inspiring people to have different interests/passions, that we should use to help others with?

1 peter 4:10 - Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.

Yes. In several places. There are also several historical accounts of how we are to be givers by utilizing the talents, skills, and abilities God has given us. Every good and perfect gifts comes from God. The whole point of him blessing (or empowering and inspiring) us is so that we can have our needs met, some 'wants' satisfied, ppl around us to see how good he is, and most important to have more than enough so that we can share and meet the needs of those in need. They become infected and the cycle perpetuates. This in turn builds his Kingdom. Giving him what he deserves- the praise, glory, and honor. God gives us the desires (places them there) that are in our hearts. We didn't just happen upon them. He is the source of those interests and passions.
