Coveting Spiritual Gifts….

We each possess specific spiritual gifts, according to the grace given to each of us and God is calling all of us to use those gifts in accordance with our faith (Romans 12:6). Therefore, it’s incumbent for us to remember that God anoints and appoints certain people to accomplish certain tasks in building His kingdom here on this planet! Some of us are anointed with gifts that stand out while others receive gifts that are more private (like intercessory prayer). But the Spirit distributes different gifts for different callings to all types of people. For a variety of reasons, we become critical and jealous, leading to an attitude of arrogance and rebellion. Those bad seeds sow destructive fruits. People who eat that rotten fruit get sick and spread those destructive germs to many others. So let’s not covet our neighbor’s gift(s) and start exercising our own gifts. It doesn’t if you are holding a mic preaching in an auditorium filled with a thousand people or cleaning a stall in the church’s restroom; the glory God’s receives from your obedience is received all the same. Walter E. Disney said, “Whatever you do, do it well. Do it so well that when people see you do it, they will want to come back and see you do it again, and they will want to bring others and show them how well you do what you do.”
