6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
Romans 12:6-8 KJV
We all have talents given us by grace
According to the nature of our soul;
Just as the body has each part in place
That has a special function toward the whole.
The ones with prophesy speak truth so bold,
With ministry to aid the poor and weak;
The teachers lay the doctrine out as gold,
Exhorters urge, advise and so critique.
To those who give do with simplicity,
And those that rule are earnest in their care;
The merciful attend the anxious plea,
And everyone above immersed in prayer.
The gifts that God has given us to use
Should be to serve the Savior, not abuse.
