There are few options to embed Google Sheets depending on how you would like the sheet to appear.

Standard Google Sheet View

This view will display the Google Sheet as if it were being viewed inside a Google tool like Drive or Sheets. Share settings from the Google Sheet will control who can see the Sheet in the tile. Collaborators with edit access to the Google Sheet will be able to edit the Sheet in the tile.

Example:

Published Google Sheet View

This view will display a public view of the Google Sheet. Anyone regardless of the Sheet's share settings will be able to see the Sheet. Editing will not be available in the tile even for collaborators with edit access in the Sheet's share settings:
