Amish Devotional on Spiritual Gifts

God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.1 Peter 4:10

Sarah sat on the front porch snapping green beans while enjoying a warm June morning. The twins, Emily and Hailey, sat at her feet with their own bowls learning as they watched her work. Summer came early to Willow Springs, which meant Sarah’s daily chores now included taking care of the garden. A warm breeze tickled her nose, and she smiled as she watched her five-year-old daughters mimic her quick fingers.

Going over her mental list, she checked each item off, hoping she could make well of her chores for the day. She would need to finish early, so she had plenty of time to make an upside-down pear cake. It would be a perfect treat to bring to the work frolic at Emma’s the next day.

From across the yard, she marveled at the row of sunflowers. Each yellow head had its face lifted to the sun, which reminded her of the women of her community. Not one of them stood alone but came together as a unified group, putting their faith in the Lord to lead them through life as a group. Much like the sunflowers that swayed in the gentle breeze.

Tomorrow’s frolic was one way she could use her God-given gift of serving. It warmed her heart to think it would lighten Emma’s load by lending a hand.

“Greatness lies not in trying to be somebody but in trying to help somebody.” Amish Proverb

Do you know what your spiritual gift is?

God designed each of us for a purpose, a special gift meant just for you. If you want to live a Christ-centered life, take the time to figure out what spiritual gifts you have and find ways to actively use them.

The seven spiritual gifts are prophecy, serving, teaching, exhortation, giving, leadership, and mercy.

I have the gift of mercy and serving, and I’d love to hear what yours is. So drop me an email at author@tracyfedrychowski.com and tell me all about your spiritual gift.
