Concerning gifts do not be uninformed. There is often either too much emphasis or too little on this topic of St. Paul. It is often also a source of division and boasting within the Church. Yet we should always remember St. Paul’s words when he says that whatever the gift, it is from God, empowered by the spirit, and for the same purpose. It should not be a source of division, but encouragement and growth as Christ works through his people to carry out his mission.
