31 Days with the Spirit: Variety


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 Cor 12:7-11

I think it’s pretty awesome how each of us can be blessed by the Spirit in different areas.  Just as our strengths and weaknesses make each individual unique, so can the gifts that God gives us.  And do you know what else?  I am so glad he puts others in my path that have different gifts than I do.  Life would be pretty boring and less productive if we were all the same!
