Spiritual Gifts: Prophecy

The gift of prophecy is the ability to speak God’s word to others, or more appropriately to be open for God to speak God’s word through us. Prophets do not predict the future, but offer insight and perspective on current conditions and how things might turn out if changes aren’t made. Prophets are incisive, clear, and often controversial, communicators. Prophets see things that others often don’t, and they have the courage to “tell it like it ought to be.”

Reflection questions:

● How does prophecy impact your life at home, at work, in relationships with friends?

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

● In what ways can you develop and improve the use of prophecy?

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