God gave all of us gifts, but some of us never bother to open the package
Do not envy the one who preaches powerful, moving sermons; or the one who sings songs that touch the heart. Applaud them for what they are doing with the talent they have to glorify Me. Don’t allow envy to cause you to forget what you have and say, "Why didn’t He give that to me, and what little I have isn't worth cultivating." Stop. Don’t do that to yourself. Each time you make that confession you are burying the talent that I’ve given you. Neither say, "It doesn't seem fair," for I am no respecter of persons. I know what you need, and I have supplied that need, but are you using it?
Please do not compare the gift that I have given you with the gifts others have, for I have distributed to each one as I will and according to each person's ability. To each, what they receive is in the fullness of their ability to manage and My provision of grace. I have blessed you with a gift uniquely created just for you; are you using your gift?
I know your desire to glorify Me. Therefore, I have equipped you with the right amount and mix of gifts and talents; that when properly used, they will bring glory to My name. They are uniquely yours. If you use what I have given you, your gifts will bless others and glorify My Kingdom. Therefore, please stop envying what others have and worrying about what they are doing; for I have a question to ask you, “What are you doing with the gifts I’ve given you?”
Meditate on My Word:
Mat 25:15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
Mat 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
Mat 25:24-29 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
