“I can do what you can't do, and you can do what I can't do. Together we can do great things.”

Perhaps Mother Teresa was thinking about spiritual gifts when she said this.

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them.There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit,  to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues.  All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines. (1 Corinthians 12:4-11).

So let us consider what we can do and just get on with it, instead of dwelling on what we cannot do, or what someone else should be doing because together, doing what we can, we will do great things for God.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for making us to be individuals with separate gifts and talents, that together, can do great things for you. In Christ. Amen.
