Vulnerability of the Spiritual Gift Administrator | Governments

All the gifts, talents and abilities that we have can be used negatively.  When administration | Governing is used in a selfish, harsh, over-barring, reckless manner or when it is enabling sin or dysfunctional behavior, it would not be Spirit-led or an expression of love.  This gift is best used when coupled with Faith, Evangelist, Encouragement, Interpretation, Tongues and Miracles.

For example, someone with the Administration gifting could be blessed with a natural hardworking drive towards perfection, but in some instances, may become controlling.
