Deep within the human spirit is a desire and a capability to do wonderful things. Because we were made in the image of God we inherited from Him the desire to create, to accomplish, to make things happen. But God would not give us these desires without also giving us the means to carry them out. These “means” are called abilities or talents. They are the gifts God has given us to help us accomplish great things for Him, and to help us enjoy life. How we use or misuse these talents ultimately determines our quality of life—quality being defined not as comfort or the accumulation of things, but in terms of character, joy and lasting satisfaction. Our goal is to first discover our abilities, then exercise them and finally channel them toward good and not evil…….
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. ………Philippians 1:6
For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. ….. Matthew 25:29
