You can’t do everything, so do something

"Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good." 1 Corinthians 12:4-7
We all have a unique set of gifts and talents. Having a gift doesn’t mean you are automatically good at, which is a popular myth. It often is something that brings you joy, or something you find it easy to invest time in. Everyone is asked to love God, love their neighbor, and love themselves. Our unique gifts are how we put that love into action.
Have you heard yourself say, “I’m just a…”? If so, with all love and respect, you should probably stop. Nobody is just anything. We are all given our own talents to use and share. You may use your gifts through work, with your family, or where you volunteer. All of those places are important and so are you!
Our culture is fixated on those who are up front or on display. Yet most of us spend most of our time on important work that few people will ever see. This behind the scenes work is every bit as important as work that is visible to many. Jesus often praised those who were faithful in less visible ways and warned those who made themselves the center of attention.
So how do we know what our gifts and talents are? No doubt, some of them are immediately obvious to you and others. Some you use every day. There could be others that you are less aware of.  This free quiz will help you figure out what additional gifts and talents may be hiding inside of you. You may not agree with everything in the results (which is fine), but it could spark your curiosity to explore something new!
