Listen to what David says in Psalm 139:13–18 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it! You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. I can’t even count them; they are like the grains of sand. And when I wake up, you are still with me!

SPIRITUAL GIFTS - a set of special abilities that God has given you to share his love & to serve others. 1 Peter 4:10 God has given gifts to each of you from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Manage them well so that God's generosity can flow through you. A spiritual gift is: * a God-given SPECIAL ABILITY given to every believer at conversion by the Holy Spirit. * to SHARE God's love and to STRENGTHEN the body of Christ. 4 Common Traps: 1. Comparison - places greater value on the more visible gifts. 2. Projection - expecting others to be good at the things were good at. 3. Rejection - I can't have that gift... 4. Deception - when you believe you have gifts you don't actually have, which distracts you from the gifts you do have. "Your spiritual gifts were not given for your own benefit but for the benefit of others." Rick Warren For more from this series, check out our podcast on our app!
