Links for Motivational Gifts Bible Study
Date Posted: October 1, 2017

Have you ever wondered, "How could she do that when she says she's a Christian?" or how about, "Where does he get off talking like that going to church and all?" Often times we may be taken aback at what our Christian brothers and sisters in Christ say and do. I was astounded at how much better I understood my Christian siblings after I wrote this bible study from Charles Stanley's sermons and from a book by Don and Katy Fortune.

It wasn't that [names are changed here] Selina was mean, she had a strong gift of Perceiver. To her everything was black or white, good or bad, godly or wicked. She didn't have a lot of gray areas in her thinking, so she spoke as she heard God's Word speaking without the mitigating circumstances. She felt like dealing mercifully with someone would lead them directly to Hell, so she needed to set him or her on the straight and narrow.

It wasn't that Tim was such an intellectual flimsey. He worked very well with his hands, loved to display God's love by doing for others, hated to deligate because it was easier to do it himself and it was done correctly. He had a whopping portion of the gift of Server.

If you'd like to understand your siblings (and your self) better. You can read through, or really study, these gifts given to you the instant you become a true Believer.
