1 Corinthians 12:8-10 says” 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.
There is not one person that will say they don’t like getting gifts, because we all love it rather it’s small or huge we love receiving gifts. It makes us smile and overall it makes us feel loved. I always say that when a person gives you something it’s because they had you on their heart.
But today I want to talk about “Gifts” that we receive that are for the other person and not for you! The Lord gives each one of His Children Spiritual Gifts and these gifts are given to us to share with other people. We are not to sit or hide our gifts and be foolish like the five (5) virgins without oil for their lamps or those who had the talents and did not use them for others. Jesus called them foolish for what they did.
The gift that Jesus gives us is to be active in our lives because the Lord will place us in a position where we will use that gift or gifts to minister to people. Now here is where the blessing comes in, the moment you and I share our gifts with other people we are blessing the Father, and isn’t that our hearts desire is to bless the Lord in every area of our lives?
Today I ask you what is your spiritual gift and are you sharing it with others or are you like the five (5) virgins who missed out when the groom came?
