on spiritual gifts

This is taken from F. B. Meyer's devotional commentary on 1 Corinthians 12, which deals with spiritual gifts and usefulness within the church body.

"We have nothing to do with the work he confides to others, and must concentrate on that which he means to achieve through us. If this means cooperation with other members or service to them, if it means hidden obscurity or temporary disuse, we must be equally content. It is for him to do as he wills. There is no room for envy or jealousy; they must give place to loving fellowship and mutual help, and to the quiet peace and rest which come from recognizing the good pleasure of the Creator."
