Different Dispositions

Calvin is highly devotional and pastoral in his commentary on I Thessalonians 5. Reading that section alone is a conviction masterpiece.

In a lengthy series of exhortations on how to deal with the idle and disruptive, Paul does not have a one-size-fits-all approach, rather he writes:

But since different people have different dispositions, it is with good reason that the apostle commands believers to use a variety of methods to achieve this end.

Paul is aware of the necessity of many gifts to address many problems through many  methods.
