We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. – Romans 12:6-8 NIV
God gives each of us unique gifts and talents. Some of us are good at sharing Jesus Christ, others are good at serving. Some of us excel at teaching and encouraging. Some of us have money to give to charity or lead organizations.
We sometimes play small, but we are God’s children, and nothing is small about His accomplishments through us when we follow Him.
Just as it takes time for a rose to bud and bloom, it takes time to for us to cultivate our gifts. God can give us courage to learn something new or to expand on a strength we already have. Amen.
