    Gifts quotes by:    

Above all the grace and the gifts that Christ gives to his beloved is that of overcoming self.

    Author: Francis of Assisi

The chief means for attaining wisdom, and suitable gifts for the ministry, are the Holy Scriptures, and prayer.

    Author: John Newton

If others don't use their gifts, you get cheated, and if you don't use your gifts, they get cheated.

    Author: Rick Warren

Your spiritual gifts were not given for your own benefit but for the benefit of others, just as other people were given gifts for your benefit.

    Author: Rick Warren

We begin life with the natural, next we come into the spiritual; but then, when we have truly received the kingdom of God and His righteousness, the natural is added to the spiritual, and we are able to receive the gifts of His providence and the blessings of life without becoming centered in them or allowing them to separate us from Him.

    Author: A.B. Simpson

You tell your children to clean their room, not because you cannot stand it any longer, or because you said to. Love teaches them that possessions are gifts from God that should be gratefully received and taken care of.

    Author: Jerry Falwell

He that bears the privations of the gifts of God and the esteem of men, with an even soul, knows how to enjoy his Supreme Good beyond all time and above all means.

    Author: Madame Guyon

God gives us gifts, graces, and natural talents, not for our own use, but that we may render them to Him. He takes pleasure in giving and in taking them away, or in so disposing of us, that we cannot enjoy them; but their grand use is to be offered in a continual sacrifice to Him; and by this He is most glorified.

    Author: Madame Guyon

Prayer is not appointed for the furnishing of God with the knowledge of what we need, but it is designed as a confession to Him of our sense of the need. In this, as in everything, God's thoughts are not as ours. God requires that His gifts should be sought for. He designs to be honoured by our asking, just as He is to be thanked by us after He has bestowed His blessing.

    Author: A.W. Pink

Unless we are willing to pay the price, and sacrifice time and attention and what appear legitimate or necessary duties, for the sake of the heavenly gifts we need not look for a large experience of the power of the heavenly world in our work.

    Author: Andrew Murray

To place ourselves in range of God's choicest gifts, we have to walk with God, work with God, lean on God, cling to God, come to have the sense and feel of God, refer all things to God.

    Author: Cornelius Plantinga

God dispenses gifts, not wages. None of us gets paid according to merit, for none of us comes close to satisfying God's requirements for a perfect life. If paid on the basis of fairness, we would all end up in hell... In the bottom line realm of ungrace, some workers deserve more than others; in the realm of grace the word 'deserve' does not even apply.
