In order to be in the best place possible to leverage our gifts, we must understand not only our spiritual gifts, but also our unique individual talents. The following assessments are helpful in starting the process of knowing and using our gifts.
Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you. Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers. -1 Timothy 4:14-16
