Spiritual Gifts: Interpretation of Tongues

Those who are gifted to interpret tongues help build bridges across cultural, generational, and language divides. People who possess this gift have an innate ability to learn new languages and cultural practices, and can help others understand them as well. Foreign speaking people are attracted to those with this gift, and feel intuitively that they will be better understood and received by interpreters. Interpretation breaks down barriers.

Reflection questions:

● Where are you able to use interpretation at home, at work, in relationships with friends?

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

● In what ways can you improve your use and knowledge of the gift of interpretation?

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