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. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the discernment of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. All these are activated by one and the same Spirit, who allots to each one individually just as the Spirit chooses.
1 Corinthians 12:4-11
Our life calling is to discover the gifts that God has given us that will bless the world around us. God has given each of us our unique gifts for the common good. The thing is, we do not discover them ourselves. God will activate them in us as we love and serve others. Let us love and serve each other and allow God to activate our unique gifts. What a joyful journey of discovery this can be! God bless you all during a busy season with studies and exams.
Lord, all good gifts come from you. May you activate my unique gifts as I love and serve others. Amen.
