1 Corinthians 12 - Key


But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

We are supposed to earnestly covet he best gifts. They are gifts that we receive, but that does not mean that we should not work at them.


2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Preaching and teaching are gifts, but this verse also talks about the need for studying and being a workman.

...Rightly dividing the word... makes me think of writing outlines. I'll keep working on writing outlines, in my pursuit of teaching.
