use your talents


We all have talents & abilities of various kinds; stuff that just comes naturally and we really enjoy doing. Sadly, I think in our day the majority of people tend to abandon theirs for the 'cool', 'popular', 'trendy' things... and they don't even realize it! I'm telling you, it annoys me to no end. I'm not saying that you should totally and completely drop a hobby/dream just because you're not talented. No, I firmly believe that with most things, more work than actual skill is required to achieve success. However, I do also believe that we were given the skills we have for a reason - to glorify God's name - and saying they're 'not as cool compared to _____'s' is just the same as saying that God made a mistake... and God never makes mistakes. We were each given just enough, not too little & not too much.

"And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability..." ~ Matthew 25:15

Let's not bury our talents in the ground... let's use them to make a difference.
