2 The Seven Gifts of the Spirit
Read the list of the 7 Gifts of the Spirit below then match the gifts in the packet with the Gifts of the Spirit on the Google Form.
Knowledge is the gift that helps us to know ourselves and the world around us. It helps us to know where our faith is leading us and what our church is about. “Knowledge” is the gift that makes us smart about ourselves.
Understanding helps us to untie the knots, to straighten out our lives, to deal with our problems. “Understanding” is letting the Word of God have room in our lives.
Wisdom is the gift of the Holy Spirit that helps us to see and understand God’s plan in our lives and in the world. It helps us to say, “Aha, I finally understand.”
Courage is the gift of the Holy Spirit that helps us walk out into the world and feel prepared. It gives us the stick-to-it-iveness to stand up for what we believe.
Reverence is the gift of the Holy Spirit that helps us to see God in everything around us. It teaches us to treat our fragile world gently.
Wonder is the gift of the Holy Spirit that keeps us awestruck by the power and beauty of God in our lives. “Wonder” and awe explode like a starburst when we let the Holy Spirit into our lives.
Right Judgment is the gift of the Holy Spirit that encourages us to talk things over so that we can make choices that let us feel comfortable with ourselves afterwards. “Right Judgment” keeps us from feeling like suckers.
