Attributes of the Perceiver Day 6

___________________________Problems of the Perceiver
Each of the gifts has its own set of problems. Without adversity and without problems, we would never learn the value of spiritual growth – Spoken like a true Perceiver. We won’t “score” ourselves on the misunderstandings or the problems each gift has. However, it is very important that we do understand the shortcomings because that is where our spiritual growth will stem from and it is these things that will help us to understand each other, forgiving one another with love and mercy toward each other.

The Prophet Needs To Learn How To Deal With Misunderstandings And To Soften His Use Of His Gift When Necessary. Jonah is a classic example of a Prophet with a Problem


1. Often interpreted as being intolerant/black or white and no shades of gray.


2. Interpreted as having a disinterest in listening to another’s point of view.


3. Frankness is often viewed as harshness. His motive is to get right to the problem and deal with the problem.


4. Interest in groups seems like not interested in individuals.


5. Efforts to get results may seem as though he is using gimmicks. True motive is that a gimmick is a step towards accomplishing an end result. Result oriented.


6. Emphasis on decisions may seem to be neglecting spiritual growth. He is extremely interested in spiritual growth but realizes there will be none without a conscious decision.

7. Public boldness may hinder personal relationships. Prophets are often the loneliest of the gifts. It appears they don’t want relationships when on the inside they are hungry for fellowship. This is often the hardest area to deal with for those who have this gift.
