I went to church last Sunday, and the sermon was about spiritual gifts. I have heard sermons like these for the majority of my life, but this one seemed to have made more of an impression on me.A Unique Gift for a Unique Purpose
I belong to a women’s Life Group that meets on Wednesday nights, and our leader had me take a quiz to see what my spiritual gifts are (Gifts Test). My top five gifts are exhortation, prophecy, pastor/shepherd, discernment, and faith. I was surprised by one of these gifts, which is pastor/shepherd. I took a similar test back about 15 years ago, and this was not included, but helper was. I got to thinking about why. My conclusion is that when I was younger I was a great helper, but as I got older and matured, I began shepherding people around me, like my children, co-workers, and some family members.
I would like to grow my AdvoCare business and shepherd others who are interested. I know that God has prepared me for this, and I am ready.
