Don’t Despise Others’ Spiritual Gifts

Paul urges others not to despise others’ gifts (1 Corinthians 12:21-26).

A good deal of life’s contentment comes from the realization that God did not intend everyone to be just like me.  The world is richer and better because of the variety of persons Christ has gifted by His authority, our of His generosity for His purpose.

You will never be at peace in the Church until you recognize that God has brought different kinds of people (with different gifts and levels of maturity) into the Church to enrich your life and build up the Church in ways God knows best.
