We all understand or at least suspect that God’s gifts are significant and unique, and because of that, for unexplainable reasons, we consider that these gifts are addressed only to specialists, and only those who know much and enjoy glory and admiration in their daily lives. We also think that ordinary and everyday people do not have a share in knowledge and experience, so they are excluded from these issues and we consider it a natural state that they have to be dependent on the opinion of others.
This is obviously an erroneous and pretentious picture of God’s gifts, even if it is taken into account that nowadays, simple people manage huge issues involving millions of people and their everyday lives, from car drivers to professionals who care for our everyday life.
While we – the ordinary people – are managing big issues of our lives, when it comes to the management of God’s gifts, for unexplainable reasons, we think it is an issue that does not concern us, an issue that we cannot have knowledge of and of course we cannot manage it. And that is obviously wrong and even fatal.
