Gifts, ministries and self-improvement

In recent weeks at church we’ve been thinking about ‘Ministry and ministering’ – essentially examining ideas relating to spiritual gifts.  All of which has left me wondering about my own gifts, talents and abilities (spiritual or otherwise).

So I was intrigued to come across this tweet from Sally Hogshead (great name, slightly scary Twitter page!):

The greatest value you can add is to become more of yourself.

I’m inclined to agree.  If we all played to our strengths, rather than focussing a lot of energy on addressing our weaknesses, I think there would be a significant net gain.  And I’m sure there would be a significant boost to our confidence and well-being.

Any thoughts?
