“I wish that all people were just like me. But each has his own gift from God, one person in this way and another in that way.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭7:7‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

My husband and I often joke about other people’s taste or opinions, whether it be landscaping or politics, and how “obviously, they didn’t ask MY opinion” since certainly the decision would have been different. Have you ever thought this? If so, it looks like we are in good company since even the apostle Paul admitted wishing everyone were like him re their spiritual gifts.

When we see someone so different from ourselves and are tempted to criticize, it’s wise to take a step back and realize that person fills a specific need within the body of Christ that you and I cannot fill. We each have a unique gifting, and it behooves us to seek out the uncommon or less obvious proclivities of individuals to better appreciate our differences and learn from each other. 🚦
