Session 3 knowing me knowing you

  1. 1. Knowing Me Knowing You
  2. 2. Motivational Gifts
  3. 3. Benefits: • Helps you to better understand and accept who you are • Understanding motivational gifts bears fruit in reducing conflict and basic misunderstanding of others • Gives insight into behaviors you might find puzzling in others
  4. 4. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. Romans 12 v 4-8
