The Uniqueness That is You

Have you ever noticed the uniqueness of your fingertips? I mean really just examined each and every one of them? Obviously I have way too much time on my hands because I have. Lol Each one is so unique and different from the other.

This morning as I was reading Titus I got side tracked examining my finger prints. Don’t ask me why. I have no idea other than to write this. As I noticed the intricacies of these prints and the differences in each one I thought each one of us also have been made special and unique by God, each with our own special gifts given to us by God to use for His glory.  We should not compare ourselves in any way to others. There is absolutely no reason for that. It is the exact uniqueness of those differences that makes the body of Christ so special. I am reminded of that in 1Cor 12:17-20, 27 If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. And if they were all one member, where would the body be? But now indeed there are many members, yet one body. 27 Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.

I love that. We are individuals yet together God weaves us into this amazing body He calls His bride, the church.

Father help us to allow ourselves to use our gifts to their full potential for Your glory, embracing the uniqueness of who You have created us to be individually. When we do that competition ceases and God is magnified and glorified.

Father thank you so much for teaching me I so need it every day. ;)

    So true. We forget that each and every one of us is so special. Each of us is one of a kind.

    Thanks for your comment Angie and you are right it is so easy especially as we spend time in the world to forget how special we are to God but He tells us He has numbered the hairs on our heads. We are indeed special to Him. ;)

    Yes, we are all unique. I even see that in my identical (in looks only) twins as I have seen it in other sets of identical twins that I have taught over the years. I would tell them that they could switch with each other in class and I might not know it until I quizzed them or tested them. The exact same gifts are not given to both students – there’s always one stronger in the subject matter! Thank you God for the gifts you’ve chosen for each of us.

    Beth, great reminder that we shouldn’t focus on comparisons. These gifts were given to us before our time began for His glorious plan. But He also gives us gifts daily as He knows what we will encounter. I so marvel at His timeliness and at my amazement. I should expect that He will provide, but still continue to be amazed! How many times do we sit and look at something quizically that has come to us! What am I going to do with this? Then through the course of that day I sit dumbfounded by the requirment for an item that seems to haphazardly come into my possession. Gifts, Daily Bread, whatever one chooses to call it’s His amazing grace that’s given as needed to sustain us in our daily walk. Beth, thanks again for the reminder and opportunity to think on these things. It causes me to see, remember how special we are that He lavishes us with His love.

    You’re so welcome Lisa. I do that as well. I expect that He is going to help me or provide for me but then sometimes it comes in the most unexpected way it simply amazes me. I think it’s good to continue to be amazed by God. ;)
