Each of us is a unique person, created by God with particular personalities, physical attributes, and talents. We have likes and dislikes. Why do some people love spicy food and others hate it? Because each person’s taste buds react to different kinds of food. A food choice doesn’t make someone better or worse than another; it’s just part of who that individual is.
Spiritual gifts are another aspect that makes us distinct. We are given these gifts for the benefit of others: our families, our friends, our church, and our community. When we get involved in ways that align with our spiritual gifts and abilities, we unlock new potential and help to foster a more rewarding experience for ourselves and others.
