One Purpose, Different Paths

Romans 12:4-6
For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them

My marriage today looks very different than it did six years ago. Early on, we struggled to get on the same page. We believed a lot of stereotypes about roles in marriage and life. 

As we got to know one another better, we learned that we were taking responsibility for roles that did not align with our strengths. We started to let go of what we thought a husband or wife should do and started leaning into the areas that came naturally to each of us.

Romans 12:6 tells us that we all have gifts that differ. God has created us differently and gifted us uniquely—and that is such a good thing. God calls us all to do good things in His glory, but each of our paths looks very different. When we embrace the gifts God gives us, we can serve and love others better. 

More Devo 7.12Thought of the day: What are your God-given gifts and talents? How can you use those gifts to do good and serve others?

Prayer: God, thank You for making each one of us with a specific purpose in mind. Thank You for using each of us in different ways to help others meet, know, and follow Jesus.
