5. What do you think the purpose of our gifts is?

6. Do you think Jesus can give us more gifts or are we stuck with what we have?

7. Take time to pray.   

Ask For Help.

Some students are hands on learners and the greatest thing that you can do is set up some space for them to have some sort of responsibility within the group. For example bringing a devotional thought from their 1chapter reading, praying for the group, etc. This is especially true for the older crew. 

Post Pictures. 

Posting pictures of students or giving some sort of shout out on social media can really fuel a kids tank. Take a picture during groups or grab a specific student and snap a pic then write something awesome about them. So simple but powerful!

Some Scriptures. 

1 Peter 4:10 ESV

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace...

Romans 12:6-8 ESV

Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads,[a] with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11 ESV

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills.
