1 Corinthians 12:4-6 (ESV) – Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone.
We all have a gift; but, it requires some assembly. It requires us to build it into something, but, because so many haven’t grown to see and accept the work required, having the gift becomes a matter of comparison to others. to be certain, if their gift looks more appealing than ours it’s likely they’ve taken the time to cultivate it. the Lord didn’t shortchange you on your gift; that’s not what he does. but, if you’re waiting for him to put it together for you, realize that he doesn’t do that either. he gave you all of the pieces; the blessing of having the gift is building it into something useful. It requires work.
