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. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
1 Corinthians 12:4-11 New International Version
Are you very beautiful?
Do you prance around like a prima donna proud of your beauty?
Was your beauty not a gift from Jehovah?
Do you thank Him for that?
Do you use that talent to give glory to Him instead of giving glory to yourself? .
Is that not playing the part of the fool?
Can you blame Him if He takes your beauty from you?
Do you have talent to paint, write or sing?
Do you stand there basking in the limelight instead of giving glory to God and using your God giving talent to serve Him?
Is that not playing the fool?
Prayer: Please Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) do not allow me to become arrogant and ungrateful for the gifts You have so graciously blessed me with.
Please provide me with the opportunities to use these gifts to bring glory to You.
I humbly request this in the name of He who used His gifts to bring glory to You as He walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
