Math 25: 15-30 To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. 16 He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made five talents more. 17 So also he who had the two talents made two talents more. 18 But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money.
We may say that I am like the last one who hid the talent under the ground. Why are we not using our talents? First of all do we know what our talent is? What is the talent for? The potter designs the cup in a manner that it does not break unless it is put down. The pot is used for many purposes in our home, garden etc.
If a pot can be used in so many ways how much are we? We are more than we think. We ought to do something that enables us to be more achieving and fruitful. Let’s remove all our negative thoughts, guilt, addictions etc and make a way possible to do things which are positive, overcoming and supportive. We all are the same no one is higher than us, we are all equally in the sight of God, stop comparing yourself with others and do not judge wrongly.
Our designer has made us with special talent and with special purpose. It is for a cause’ to change the world, to tell the world, and to make our life’s beautiful. God given talent should not be hidden. Do not worry if it is hidden now. It’s time to dig the ground and utilize the time to develop your talent. Put more effort until you achieve it and most importantly Pray that God may enable us to use it in a way that it is fruitful.
Lord help to discover my talent. Guide me to use it in a proper way. Protect my character and enable to move higher for your glory. Let my life be a fruitful one. In JESUS Name. AMEN.
