“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us. A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other.” (I Corinthians 12: 4-7, New Living Translation)
You have been given a gift. It is one that is useful, needed, and powerful. That gift is your individuality. It is that special way in which God expresses His qualities through you.
No one is alike and there is no competition. The Oneness of God as the Source of all our precious gifts, assures that all complement one another and do not compete for position or relevance or power. We are all equally necessary and equally called to utilize our special identity—that special way in which we shine—to help one another. Our gifts may include artistry, imagination, diligence, faithfulness, kindness, intuition, humor, gentleness, awareness, wisdom, grace, and we express these spiritual qualities like no one else.
Get acquainted with what makes you special and treasure it with all your heart. Give of that gift (and you likely have many!), with a trust in its potency for good. God gave you that “assignment” by making you the way He made you. And all have been given their own unique and perfect calling.
We are joined in this great work of Life and Love, and we can share freely. God, good, is working in and through us all, assuring that we all harmonize and that His own nature, Love, is seen and known on earth as it is in heaven.
