Luke 8:16-18 Our Talents are a Gift from God

Jesus said to the crowd:
"No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel
or sets it under a bed;
rather, he places it on a lampstand
so that those who enter may see the light.
For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible,
and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light.
Take care, then, how you hear.
To anyone who has, more will be given,
and from the one who has not,
even what he seems to have will be taken away."

This parable reminds us that we are called to share our love for God with the world. Our talents are a gift from God. They flow from the Holy Spirit and are ways in which we can share God's love for the world. Yet, so often we forget this point and either squander our talents or fail to used them to their fullest. There is no point in being a gifted musician when no one hears our music. So spread the good news however you can with the talents God has bestowed on you.
