We all have different gifts.
Maybe you are a good leader. Maybe you remember things well. Maybe you are organized. That's the gift of LEADERSHIP
Are you friendly? Do you like to make people feel comfortable? That's call HOSPITALITY.
Do you feel bad for people or animals that are sick or hurt? That's called MERCY.
There are many gifts and sometimes we don't even know what ours are! But others might see them in us.
The important part is to use whatever gifts we have to show love for others and for God.
This little video helps explain gifts a little bit more.
A little girl named Lorna really wanted to do something for God and the Kingdom but she didn’t think she had any gifts. Someone told her that she had a nice smile so she decided to use her smile to cheer people up and bring joy to others. Lorna is now 87 years old and she still uses the gift of her smile for God.
Our purpose may change over the years. You might not know your purpose right now. That’s okay! As children, maybe your purpose right now is to be a friend to someone who is lonely. Maybe it is to learn what you can in school and do your best. Maybe it is to obey your parents. Maybe it is to learn a musical instrument or another talent to use for God’s Kingdom. But, your main purpose is to be part of the "Body of Christ" on earth and build up His Kingdom.
