In a post about comparisons I referred to a tipped scale. It is where we measure ourselves against others and it results in inaccurate conclusions. Today let’s further that and talk about why we have strengths. It’s a simple concept and will only take a moment. Our gifts and talents are there so that we can help others!
Did you catch that? Help others!
So in reality if we truly focused our strengths on helping others then comparisons could fade away. We would find unity. A community in which we all pooled our strengths to make things and people better. And our weaknesses? Oh yeah, those. They wouldn't scream so loudly because we would be focused on using our strengths. Plus the weaknesses we have would covered by the strengths around us.
A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. 1 Corinthians 12:7
