Spiritual Gifts: Exhortation

The gift of exhortation is manifest in people who offer encouragement, wise counsel, unflagging support, and empowerment. Those who exhort stay focused on helping people maximize their own potential and live from their own gifts and skills. Exhorters help people feel good about themselves, build confidence, and not grow discouraged. Often, those with the gift of exhortation make others feel good just by being present.

Reflection Questions:

  • In what ways do you use exhortation at home, at work, in relationships with friends? 
  • What other gifts best complement exhortation, and enable you to increase the value and impact of your gift?
  • In what ways can you improve and strengthen the gift of exhortation?
  • Where do other people see evidence of this gift in your life?
