I hoped you started out by watching the Apple Color Flood video. It is one of my favorite advertisements that Apple has ever done. I like it because for me it is perfect illustration of how we behave as the Body of Christ. We are not all called to be one color. Some of us are called to be purple (that is me, I am called to be purple), others of us are called to be red, then there are some of us who are called to be green, yellow, pink, etc. We are all called to be different. How boring would it be if we were all called to be the same color? Could you image a world that was all purple? I love purple, but I think I would get sick of it if the whole world was purple. I am glad that the world is made up of all different colors, each color important in its own special way. In the same way, I am glad that the Body of Christ is made up people who are different, each with their own special gifts. Each person special and important in their own way, each person worthy of space. Spend some time reading the scripture and then I will see you in the video for some additional thoughts.
Read: 1 Corinthians 12
Questions to Consider:
- What are your gifts?
- Are you using your gifts to enrich the Body of Christ?
Prayer: Help me to see the gift that I have, help me to use the gift that I have for your glory. Speak to me today, use me today and tomorrow. Amen.
