That we are all different in all means and ways is never more apparent that when it comes to comparing even the lives of identical twins before distinct personalities can be put to frame. Even while the twins are derived from the same ova, they are eventually born apart- except for Siamese twins co-joined on any parts the good God deems fit. Even in death, we all die apart despite the crowds that visit the sick beds.
And for that, no two persons can ever be equal. Physical characteristics (like height, weight, colour tone, physical, etc) have a broad range spectrum, while the psychosomatic realm is even much wider given the permutations that everyday occurrences can remove out of an individual. And in that, God gave each man and woman his or her own qualities. The same of the story of three personalities that Jesus taught about and the talents they received from their master before he was to sojourn afar. On return, the master paid each servant according to the yield from the talents they had received.
Life is a talent; so is death. Wealth and health are talents. Jobs and careers are talents. Children and parents are talents. Beauty and beast are talents. A smooth tongue and a caustic one are talents. Your well toned muscles and your well built body are talents.Husbands,wives and children ,inlaws brothers and sisters are all talents.
How are we using our talents?
Talents should be used for the service of humanity as directed by God our creator. Everything we make so much ours and ours alone is nothing but Gods provision so that we can do His work. For each, we don't know whether it is five or two one just one talent(s). That all depends on how we make of what we have. We can make it work double or we can bury it.
How are we using our talents? That will determine what the future will make of us. Just think of talented men and women and what life made of them. Yet, that is just the taster. Talents are usually abused,talented people may down-look others terming them as useless and good for nothing. It should be known to all that everything we have including ourselves we were given by God's grace.
All earthly things come and go ,wealth,fame,power,big names and dynaties. We are all subject to nature, we are today tomorrow we are gone. This happens to all including those who play god.There is more to come on the judgment day when we shall answer for our deeds either good or bad
Lord have mercy. AMEN.
