Foolproof Gifts

Foolproof Gifts

Some people seem more gifted than others. They might excel in music, sports, academics, or business. Some might even some more “spiritually gifted” than others, with greater knowledge of the Bible or the ability to do greater works of service than others. The danger with all these talents is that we can forget they are gifts of grace from God. In our arrogance, we can get puffed up because of our special talents.

That was happening in the Corinthians church in the First Century. They had super-spiritual gifts of speaking in tongues, prophesying, and healing. Instead of using these humbly in love, they were filled with pride and arrogance.

Paul taught that all our gifts are to be used in love to serve the body of believers. God’s wisdom shows us that our gifts are meaningless without love.
Scriptures: 1 Corinthians 12-14
