Welcome.  In Mission 4 we read that God gives each person natural gifts, distributed through the Holy Spirit.
Here are four scriptures listing the gifts.

Romans 12:6-8  We have different gifts according to the grace given us.  If a man’s gift is prophecy, let him use it
in proportion to his faith.  If it is serving, let him serve;  if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let
him encourage;  if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously;  if it is leadership, let him
govern diligently;  if it is showing mercy, let him do so cheerfully.

1 Corinthians 12:7  Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.  To one there is
given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the message of knowledge by means of the same
Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another prophecy, to
another distinguishing between spirits, to another the interpretation of tongues.  All these are the work of
one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines.

1 Corinthians 12:27  Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.  And in the church God
appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having
gifts of administration, and speaking in tongues.

Ephesians 4:11  It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and
some to be pastors and teachers.

These four scriptures tell us that God gives each person natural gifts.  A person can improve in many of these gifts,
but THE GIFTS YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT ARE THE ONES YOU WILL BE THE
BEST AT AND HAVE A PASSION TO PERFORM.  When you realize your natural gifts and use them to serve
others you will be serving God.

Next week, tips to figure out your natural gifts, given to you by the Holy Spirit.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
