God Given Talents and Gifts

Read Romans 12:1-8

Part of God asking you to do something includes him preparing you for the moment. So, to help us fulfill God’s purpose in our lives He gives us specific talents and specific spiritual gifts. But how do we know what our talents and gifts are? And what’s the difference between talents and spiritual gifts?

There are similarities and differences between talents and spiritual gifts. Both are gifts from God. Both grow in effectiveness with use. Both are intended to be used on behalf of others, not for selfish purposes. 1 Corinthians 12:7 states that spiritual gifts are given to benefit others and not ourselves.

Read Corinthians 12:4-11
