so, what are you good at?

Over at 22 Words, Abraham’s post is titled, “What are you better at than other people?…Now you know what you should do for them.”  And here are his ever-brief 22 words:

It’s arrogant to revel in your superiority.

But that’s different than reveling in the opportunity your superiority gives you to serve others.

And so, I’d like to know.  What are you gifted at?  If it eases your way to telling me, I’ll give you a few things I’m good at: having people over, encouraging people (usually my kids nowadays), and gulping large amounts of information.

I don’t have any delusions of grandeur when I say those things.  For all things are from him and through him and to him.  He is over all things and in him all things hold together.  He gets the glory for any giftings I have.  

Same goes for you!  So go ahead and let us know what gifts the Creator has been pleased to bestow on you.

Do you use your gifts for the good of the Body?  

And if you’re a regular reader over at 22 Words, but don’t like commenting there because there are just too many comments, feel free to share here, in this more intimate setting. 🙂

  1. i’m good at having people over,saving money and helping others to have a good time.

    bad things i am good at: being impatient,holding grudges and laughing at innapropriate times,ahahah

  2. People tell me I’m good at teaching–all different kinds of things–especially when I’m feeling like it’s a huge challenge that I can’t possibly accomplish and I lean heavily on the Lord in my attempts. When I’m feeling confident, it’s usually a flop.

    I’m often called upon to do this at church and in homeschool co-ops, and I have some piano students, as well.

    Also, reading and writing.

    So glad my husband and kids are good cooks and that they help me out with this 🙂

  3. I really like that quote:)

    I feel like I’m a decent photographer. I enjoy so much taking photos for others. I also have time to watch others children periodically, so I’m thankful for that.

  4. Sarah: I wish I was better at photography. Or even if I could just remember to pick up the camera and take some less than perfect pics.. that would be good too. 🙂
