We All Have Spiritual Gifts

We are all different. God has made us diverse in many ways. The 7.753 billion humans alive today differ in age, intelligence, ability, ethnicity, personality, gender, vocation, interests, and much more. 

In, 1 Corinthians 12 God gave His people a variety of spiritual gifts including wisdom, faith, healing, and speaking in languages. In other places, Scripture mentions other gifts, and each person receives gifts. The Holy Spirit is the one that, “distributes them to everybody, as he determines. “We must learn to see that all people have gifts from the Spirit and the gifts are equal, including people like this: The homeless man who rarely showers and sits in the back of the church. The refugee family who always keeps to themselves at church. The child with ADHD who can’t sit still. 

Today, we hold the spiritual gifts of some people in higher esteem than others, and we question whether some people have any gifts at all. This is none of our business. God esteems each of us and our gifts. To see each other as God sees us, we must know that God gives spiritual gifts to every believer, both young and old, rich and poor, short and tall. Let’s make it a matter of prayer to accept ­others as God sees them, because we all matter to Him. 

To each one, the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 1 Corinthians 12:7 

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, thank you for distributing your gifts among all believers. Father, open my eyes to see the gifts you have given to me. Lord, give me the strength and power to use my gifts for your glory. In Christ’s name, Amen. 

… we have a small favour to ask. Hundreds of people are turning to Godinterest for open, independent, quality devotionals every day, and readers in over 50 countries around the world have subscribed to us. In these perilous times, a truth-seeking ministry like Godinterest is essential. We have no shareholders or billionaire owners, meaning our writing is free from commercial and political influence – this makes us different. When it’s never been more important, Godinterest from as little as $1 – it only takes a minute. If you can, please consider supporting us with a regular amount each month. Thank you.
