I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn't always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn't always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don't always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time. Ecclesiastes 9:11 - New Living Translation (©2007)
If you don’t see what you have as a gift, you won’t protect it. You won’t guard it, you wont take care of it, you won’t appreciate it. You’ll run around to other people who are gifted and you’ll be so ignominious with what they have that you will not appreciate what you have.
You don’t know how or why you can do what you can do? You just know you can do it? That is the gift of the talent! God is at work in your life.
If there was no gift in the first place, there’ll be nothing to enhance.
Anything above zero is increase.
Opportunity often come to you draped in the suit of opposition.
I am thankful for the gift of life. I’m thankful for the gift to be and do. I’m thankful for wisdom to know how to give back and impact others. I’m thankful for my talents. I pray you find yours too and nurture it well. Don't be like the man with one bag of gold who hid his gold (talent) in the ground.
Live well. Live love.
