We all experience moments of wonder and appreciation when we gaze upon the beauty of a magnificent sunrise or sunset, the purity of an athlete’s move when they kick the goal, the artist’s brushstroke on a canvas or the last swirl on a beautifully decorated cupcake. Each one of us has received unique gifts and talents from God.
So having been given a precious gift, do we hide it in the back of a cupboard? We can all think of gifts that have been so treasured and loved that they are now well worn. Our own gifts and talents should become like those much loved gifts, often used and polished to perfection through constant service. God urges us each to develop our gifts and talents and to use them in the service of others.
