Thoughts

If you think your gift is about you, you’ve missed the point.

Pride in the revelation of what you already know can keep you from being able to live it out. For example, some of those that 5 years ago emphasized how well they had tolerance are now some of the least tolerant people towards political leaders they disagree with. 
Empowerment to live out what we know to be true comes more from the Spirit than the intellect.
