Another Way to Approach “One Word”

When I came across this 4-day reading plan on YouVersion, I had to check it out. On the first day of Life Word: Discovering Your One Word To Leave A Legacy the author states the following:

Ordinary men and women over the years who have lived with conviction left enduring legacies and changed the world. It’s fun to consider what their possible Life Words would be:

For Martin Luther, was it Reform?

Apostle Paul’s might have been Grace.

Mother Theresa’s was undoubtedly Compassion.

King Solomon’s would be Wisdom.

And perhaps the greatest Life Word was Jesus’s legacy of Love.

With that in mind, is there a single word that people would use to describe you?

How do you answer the following:

Do you know what your spiritual gifts are?

How are you using those gifts?

What other strengths do you have?

How has God stirred your heart or challenged you?

What drives you to get out of bed?

How does your passion align with God’s will?

Here are some passages that might help:

Acts 13:36

Colossians 3:23

1 Corinthians 12:4-11

James 4:14

Psalm 63:1

Psalm 90:12

Psalm 139:13-18

Romans 12:6-8

2 Timothy 4:7

I have not been able to answer this for myself yet. Can you?
