This past week I had the opportunity to visit the Reagan National Library in California. It was a remarkable experience and worth every mile we drove and every penny we spent. After fours I better appreciated the gifts of the spirit God had extended to Ronald Reagan.
A short list of gifts can be found in 1 Corinthians 12:3-11. I would suggest President Reagan did have the gift of wisdom and the gift of discernment as mentioned in 1 Corinthians. But the Apostle Paul’s letter to the people of Corinth isn’t a conclusive list of spiritual gifts. Not mentioned is the gift of genuineness. Something Reagan naturally radiated. Spiritual gifts come naturally, and are in no way forced or scripted. With Reagan there is a little irony because of his background in radio and motion pictures.
