Tidbit Tuesday - There Are Many Gifts

"Let me mention a few gifts that are not always evident or noteworthy but that are very important.
Among these may be your gifts—gifts not so evident but nevertheless real and valuable.

"Let us review some of these less-conspicuous gifts:

the gift of asking
the gift of listening

the gift of hearing and using a still, small voice
the gift of being able to weep

the gift of avoiding contention
the gift of being agreeable
the gift of avoiding vain repetition

the gift of seeking that which is righteous

the gift of not passing judgment
the gift of looking to God for guidance

the gift of being a disciple
the gift of caring for others
the gift of being able to ponder

the gift of offering prayer

the gift of bearing a mighty testimony

and the gift of receiving the Holy Ghost.

"We must remember that to every man is given a gift by the Spirit of God. It is our right and responsibility to accept our gifts and to share them."

-Marvin J. Ashton
