McCheyne’s Bible Reading Plan: Ex 8, Lk 11, Job 26-27, 1 Co 12
To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. (1 Corinthians 12:7)
When it comes to gifts, do you use them in the Church? Do you feel like you are owed something if you decide to contribute your talents in service? Paul challenges us in this kind of thinking. What excuse do I give for withholding my gifts? My gifts weren’t given to me so that I might be prideful or build an identity around. They were given to serve the common good.
