So, because I’m bored, I took a Spiritual Gifts Inventory test. Here’s my score:
Gift 1: Helps 13
Gift 2: Discernment 13
Gift 3: Mercy 11
Gift 4: Administration 11
Gift 5: Prophecy 10
Gift 6: Knowledge 9
Gift 7: Counseling 9
Gift 8: Shepherding 8
Gift 9: Teaching 8
Gift 10: Faith 8
Helps: a gift that enables me to feel fulfilled in the accomplishment of practical and necessary tasks which are often unnoticed or avoided by others.
Discernment: a gift that enables me to distinguish between truth and error, and to assess integrity of character and motivation.
Mercy: a gift that enables me to respect and care for people who are needy and neglected.
Administration: a gift that enables me to understand what makes an organization function, and to plan and execute procedures that increase the church’s effectiveness.
Prophecy: a gift that enables me to proclaim God’s truth with power and clarity in a timely and culturally pertinent way.
Knowledge: a gift that enables me to be familiar with details or situations without receiving primary or secondary information.
Counseling: a gift that enables me to listen to and observe people with discernment and assist them in their quest for spiritual, emotional and relational wholeness.
Shepherding: a gift that enables me to guide, care for and nurture individuals or groups of people in their spiritual growth.
Teaching: a gift that enables me to understand, clearly explain and apply God’s Word to the lives of learners.
Faith: a gift that enables me to trust God with unwavering belief and hope for a certain outcome.
I suspect that I either took a lousy quiz or I misunderstood a question or two. How in the world did administration rate so high?
