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. (1 Corinthians 12 v 4 - 6)
Wouldn’t it be a dull life if we were all given the same gifts! Just imagine being good at everything, what a terrible burden that would be. You would never have to call on anyone else to fix your roof, cook your dinner, look after your children, study for a PhD, sing in the local choir, do your own accounts - the list would go on and on!! You would be totally exhausted. We have all been given different abilities, different gifts, each of us to use for the common good so that we all benefit as part of our community. You are unique - so cherish the gifts that you have been given by God and use them to the best of your ability to serve not only yourself but those around you.
