1 Corinthians 12:4

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.

Insight - It is important to discover the gifts Jesus has given each of us, and to recognize the gifts that he has given other believers. Because we are individuals, Jesus has gifted us according to his design for us. What a beautiful thing it is when each persons gift complements and works in harmony with the gifts of others. God has called us in different ways to serve him. Although our gift looks different, it is God who is working in us, to bless and encourage other believers, and to reach out and serve.

Prayer - Jesus, thank you for entrusting us with special gifts. Help us use our gifts to serve you, and to work in harmony with the gifting of others.
