1 Corinthians 12:4-6 Do You Use Your Gift?

1 Corinthians 12:4-6 (NIV)
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

As I reflect on today’s scripture, I am reminded that there are several kinds of gifts that come from the same spirit and all of those gifts are supposed to work in concert with one another. When you do not tap into the gift that God has given you or hone in on your skills you are doing the kingdom of God a disservice. Sharpening and sharing your gift is being a faithful steward to the kingdom. If you are unaware of your spiritual gift, I encourage you to pray that God reveals it to you. If you are aware of it but do not use it, I pray that you become a faithful steward for the strengthening of the kingdom.
