Guys are often guilty of this. Some of us can spend hours at the big box store looking at tools. We are fascinated with the promised capability. Sometimes the draw becomes irresistible and we take the tool home–just to have that promised capability. ”I’ve never serviced my own car, but if I ever have to tighten a bolt to 300 ft/lbs, I’ve got just the torque wrench for the job!”
I’m afraid we can relate to spiritual gifts in the same manner. We’ve forgotten that God has put spiritual gifts into our hands as a contribution to the work of the church. We’re tempted to take pride in the ownership, rather than humbly working to get a job done.
No more. Whether you’re the perfect tool for the job or not you have something to offer. Bring It!
