Spiritual Gifts: Teaching

The gift of teaching allows people to transform data and information into life-changing knowledge. Teachers do not have to stand in front of a class to teach. Often gifted teachers communicate best in informal, one-on-one settings. Teachers have the uncanny knack of helping people learn effortlessly. People internalize and retain the knowledge and learning they receive from gifted teachers. Good teachers transform more than they inform.

Reflection questions:

● In what ways are you a teacher at home, at work, in relationships with friends?

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

● In what ways can you broaden and improve your use and knowledge of teaching?

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