Scripture:
“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.” ~1 Corinthians 12:4-6

Observation:
Later in the chapter, the necessity of different gifts and the importance of “weaker” members is mentioned. There are gifts in the church that are viewed as more important or even more “glamorous” than others, but each job is necessary to the proper function of the body. I wonder how many sit idle in our congregations because they do not know what their Spiritual gift is or think it isn’t important.

Application:
My gifts tend to make me high profile in the church and put me in front of others. I must never view myself as more important than others who have gifts that aren’t as obvious.

Prayer:
Father, thank You for the gifts You have given me. I pray that You will help me continue to develop them and honor You with them. I also ask that You help me to recognize and cultivate the gifts that others have and never look down on them because I feel my gifts are more important. Use me to help build up the body.
