1. Variety Is the Spice of Life—During family outings at museums, concerts, and sporting events, discuss the wide range of talents that people have. Emphasize that all gifts are special—and that the world would be boring if everyone excelled in the same areas.
2. Use ’Em or Lose ’Em—After you help children identify their talents and spiritual gifts, help them put them into practice. Especially watch for ways kids can apply their gifts at church, such as singing in a children’s choir, helping in the nursery, or preparing goodies for homebound members.
3. Thank the Giver—During prayer times, encourage children to thank God not only for their physical blessings but also for their spiritual gifts. Ask God for wisdom to use the gifts in ways that honor him.
