Another Testament of Christ.

11 05 2010

“And again, I exhort you, my brethren, that ye deny not the agifts of God, for they are many; and they come from the same God. And there are bdifferent ways that these gifts are administered; but it is the same God who worketh all in all; and they are given by the manifestations of the Spirit of God unto men, to profit them.
For behold, to one is given by the Spirit of God, that he may teach the word of wisdom;
And to another, that he may teach the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
And to another, exceedingly great faith; and to another, the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
And again, to another, that he may work mighty miracles;
And again, to another, that he may prophesy concerning all things;
And again, to another, the beholding of angels and ministering spirits;
And again, to another, all kinds of tongues;
And again, to another, the interpretation of languages and of divers kinds of tongues.” (Moroni 10:8-16)

And to another the gift of singing.
And to another the gift of dancing.
And to another the gift public speaking.
And to another the gift of cooking.

And to another the gift of photography.

These are gifts, right?
Are they any less than the gifts mentioned in the scripture above?

Well I guess that depends on how the gifts are used.

We have all been given gifts or talents. Our greatest challenge is to develop them and find ways to use them for righteous endeavors.

Think about your youth – did you have certain things you were drawn towards?

You may have even exhibited a natural ability in that field.

What did you do with that?
Were you diligent in developing the gift?

If not, you better believe that this could have happened:

“Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.” (Matthew 25:28)

If you developed the gift the question now is;
What are you doing with that gift?

Here’s a man who had an inclination towards photography – developed it – and then found a way to use it to change the lives of others for good.

Mark Mabry.

Thank-you Mark for touching my life with your gift.

? What gifts have you developed or are developing?
