Context Readings

A Variety Of Gifts In The Body Of Christ

6 But since we have special gifts which differ in accordance with the diversified work graciously entrusted to us, if it is prophecy, let the prophet speak in exact proportion to his faith; 7 if it is the gift of administration, let the administrator exercise a sound judgement in his duties. 8 The teacher must do the same in his teaching; and he who exhorts others, in his exhortation. He who gives should be liberal; he who is in authority should be energetic and alert; and he who succours the afflicted should do it cheerfully.
