We all have something to offer, it may be intellect, humour or wisdom, whatever your pot of gold may be it exists within you, and you will not find it at the end of some rainbow – you were born with it.
This gift of yours should not be confused with talent, talent is raw then refined and worked on for it to be put to better use but your gift, your gift is effortless, it is not raw simply fruitful. Both of which can be wasted but the difference between your talent and gift is that your gift remains with you no matter what, the only way you can waste your gift is if those who are on the receiving end of your gift are not putting it to greater use.
“Don’t give what is holy to dogs or toss your pearls before pigs, or they will trample them with their feet, turn, and turn you to pieces” – Matthew 7:6.
That verse needs no explanation, do not reap all that has been sowed for beings who will not digest the fruit for fulfilment but trample on them as if they serve no greater purpose, a pig sees gold as a worthless object all it will do is throw it in the mud, not admiring its beauty but basking in all the mud has to offer. Your gift is worth more than all the riches in the world, treat it as such.
