“There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.”
1 Corinthians 12:4-7
I always feel encouraged by this passage. It is such a wonderful reminder that each and every kind of gift and talent is needed in the Body of Christ. All our unique passions and skills not only come from the same source – our generous God – but are meant to be used to further His Kingdom. So there’s no room for comparison or competition, and no reason to feel less valuable. We are all an important thread in a beautiful tapestry that God is weaving together!
