Praise for talents

There are two parables about talents in the Bible.

In one story, everyone is given one talent each. In the other story, everyone is given varying amounts: ten, five, one.

The basic idea is that we have all been given the same amount of faith and love and truth. We are supposed to use that same amount and cause it to grow.

But there are other gifts that are uniquely ours, gifts that we must also use and grow.

Whatever the gift, whether unique to us or shared by others, our purpose is to grow it and to not bury it in the ground. If God has given us a talent, then he obviously trusted us with it. Use your talent. Trust yourself. Make it grow. If God has called you to use a particular talent, He obviously believes in you. Praise ye the Lord.
