Spiritual Gifts: Healing

The gift of healing is not about transferring spiritual power to eliminate suffering and disease, but the ability to channel God’s grace and healing love to those who suffer physical, emotional, or spiritual pain. Healers are moved to be present with those who suffer. Healers pray for those who suffer, visit those who are ill, and are usually moved to extend a hand of comfort and touch to those who are afflicted. Healers give their time and energy to offering aid and comfort to others.

Reflection questions:

● How does the gift of healing express itself at home, at work, in relationships with friends?

● What other gifts best complement healing, and enable you to increase the value and impact of your gift?

● In what ways can you strengthen and develop your gift?

● Where do other people see evidence of this gift in your life?
