Lent: Friday, March 31
Posted on March 31, 2017 by Sister Carol Perry

So with yourselves; since you are eager for spiritual gifts, strive to excel in them for building up the church.
- I Corinthians 14:12

By all means try to grow and acquire new gifts but always with this purpose in mind. Our gifts are from God through us to allow us to better serve God’s family. It is an obvious but not always fully accepted truth. The personal satisfaction of a gift, which is real, is only part of why we have it. It is to be shared.

May we ask for the wisdom to see how to live this challenge Paul offers.
