“Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents…Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things…” Matthew 25:16, 21
Some of our talents are not useful unless we nurture them. There are things you were born with an ability to do, but it required training and effort to hone and perfect these skills. You may have taken lessons or simply worked at developing your skills on your own.
When God gives us a talent, He does not want us to sit on it or put it up on a shelf to look nice. His plan is for us to use and increase it.
Prayer: Lord, help me to value and develop the talents You have given me, so that my life brings glory to You.
