Mis-quoting scripture for our own benefit or promotion

Here is a scripture that many Christians take out of context. 

Do not neglect the spiritual gift you received through the prophecy spoken over you when the elders of the church laid their hands on you.
1 Timothy 4:14

By just taking "do not neglect the gift within you."  When then is scripture speaks about spiritual gifts imparted to an individual.  Let's not take things out of context for our own benefit or to promote our talents, but study the Word of God and not take what you read in books as scripture interpretation.
