We like to say that we are all created equal, but we aren’t. Not really. Some people are so naturally beautiful that they could be actors or models. Others of us look like we fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down!
Some people could look at a huge project and in just a few minutes have it organized in their mind. Other people couldn’t organize a two-car parade!
The Bible says that we all have different gifts and abilities. Just like the human body is made up of many parts with various functions, the body of Christ (the Church) is made up of different parts. Each part has its own function.
Let’s understand that we are gifted differently, and let’s appreciate each other’s contribution to the body of Christ while fulfilling our own function.
“We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us…”—Romans 12:6
