God’s word says that every believer is given a spiritual gift. Each gift has equal value in God’s eyes. Gifts are given for the common good, not only for the gifted person’s benefit. Spiritual gifts are a part of your unique S.H.A.P.E. (Spiritual Gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality, and Experience). This inventory will help you identify your spiritual gifts. Biblical references for spiritual gifts are found in I Corinthians 12, I Peter 4:9-11, Romans 12:1-8, and Ephesians 4:7-13.
