Varieties of Gifts

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.

1 Corinthians 12:4-7

How often do we spend time wishing that someone else were different rather than appreciating who they are?

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

Author Unknown, Often Incorrectly Attributed to Albert Einstein

Maybe today is a good time to spend time appreciating the gifts and talents of someone you find it hard to be around, rather than wishing they were different from who they are.
