I’ve met church people who agonize over their spiritual gifts. So intent on what their gift is, they overlook the obvious. Here’s what I mean.
Gifts are special abilities given us by God that we can then use to serve Him. What’s equally important, however, when thinking about gifts is: “What are the needs of my Master?” Often what He wants done requires gifts of ours that we might think of as relatively unimportant.
If you’re stuck figuring out what gift is most important to you, change direction—all right? Ask what church jobs aren’t getting done that you’re qualified by God to fill. And then, get busy.
In the process, you might just discover some of the delights related to your giftedness you wouldn’t otherwise have known.
I am grateful that I continue to hear how positively readers are responding to my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is available at Amazon.com by clicking here.
In this book, I offer some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what their pastor has said from the pulpit.
