What are you good at? Chances are you don’t really know.
Think about it for a second. (selah)
Ok, what did you come up with?
Most of the time the things we are truly good at don’t even make the list. The things we are best at come to us so easily that we don’t tend to even notice them. They can be a bit like water to a fish.
You might be able to identify the things you are best at by noticing what things you tend to judge the most in other people. As my kids would say, “dun, dun, dun…..!”
Now we’re getting somewhere!
As natural human beings we tend to judge other people’s weaknesses against our strengths. This is a primary recipe for disunity. In reality, criticism is the opposite of honor.
Generally it’s a bad idea to compare yourself with other people. If you decide to compare other people’s strengths to your own weaknesses, you could put yourself into a clinical depression.
As as followers of Jesus, supernatural human beings, we get to come up higher and begin to value each other for the wide array of strengths that we each bring to the table.
It takes all kinds to get the work of the kingdom accomplished.
Afterall Jesus is the Head, and we are His body. I’m pretty sure He doesn’t want to be all elbows.
What is a strength you just realized that you have? I would love to hear about it in the comments!
