Attributes of the Perceiver Day 2

Remember, yesterday we were in Matthew. We looked at four characteristics of the Perciever and today we'll study four more. For each Gift, there are 20 attributes. These 20 attributes have been researched with 1000s of Christians taking questionaires given by Don and Katy Fortune. I took these attributes and scoured the Bible to find men and women who illustrated these attributes. It was such a wonderful study! I did this several years ago and I'm having such fun going through this again. This is my fourth or fifth time, now, and I am learning even more. I believe strongly that our motivations shift occasionally so we fit better into God's mold for our work. Don't forget, He gives according to our abilities and our faith. It is amazing how much more I understand now than back then. I recommend you copy/paste/print and save it to do again next year to see how your gifts may have shifted or increased. I hereby give my written permission to share this with anyone, but you cannot sell it and you must give Charles Stanley, Don and Katy Fortune and me credit. Also, you must give the sources where the information can be found.


I hope you kept your something's in Matthew 3:1-10 and Matthew 11:1-6.
