Stewardship of My Gifts and Talents

Newspapers and magazines are filled with reports about sports ‘heroes’, especially during world championships and the Olympic Games. We admire their skills, strength, and tenacity.

The same is true for top musicians, artists, and writers. There are the actors with their incredible ability to play diverse roles, imitating real life. We admire CEOs who lead large companies and to increased profit. We think highly of scientists who unlock natural mysteries.

All these people have specific talents. Sometimes we wish we would have the same or similar gifts and be more than just ‘ordinary’ people. But we have also received talents and gifts. Although they may not appear to be important, these gifts may sometimes be more crucial than the spectacular ones.
