1 Corinthians 7:7
" . . .But each of you has your own gift from God; one has this gift, another has that."NIV
" . . .But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that." KJV
Just as each snowflake has it's own unique pattern, so all humans have a gift, a special talent. There are talents that require physical strength and agility. Other gifts require creative thinking or intellectual ways of thinking. There are gifts that show good will and helpfulness to others and those that require great speakers. We all have been given a gift. We take joy in the gifts of others just as we take joy in our own gifts that God has given us. In fact, if it were not for the truth that God gives all the gifts and we are all the recipients, we would have no gifts at all.
Heavenly Father, we give You praise and glory for the precious and various gifts You give. Help us to treasure and use our gifts for Your glory and encourage others to do so. Help us to never become conceited about our gift, but in humility, use our gifts together with those of others to show Your love and mercy to a dark and dying world. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
