Hiding Talents

I have had a lot of time to reflect and think and contemplate this week. A lot has gone through my mind.

I am very lucky. God has blessed me with many talents. Some people struggle to find a single talent, and I have been blessed with many. With talent comes responsibility. With lots of talent comes lots of responsibility. Or at least that?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s how I see it.

I feel like both the first steward and the last steward. I feel the Lord has given me many talents but that I am burying them in the ground. At the same time, I do not want to bury them; I bury them because I do not know what else to do with them.

That is the basis of how I have been feeling for the last couple of years. That?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s not all of it, but it does play a part. I want to make a big difference in this world. God has given me many talents and I have a great urge to use those many talents to do something great. I want to use the talents to touch and affect the lives of many people.

Unfortunately, I need time and money.

This past week I came to the decision that whatever it is I need to do will have to wait. I have a family to support and raise and that takes up my time and money. It is not something I am willing to sacrifice for the betterment of society. Society will just have to wait.

What does this mean for Our Thoughts? I do not know. It may be back. I am just not convinced that this is where my energy needs to be spent.

A dozen or so people commented in my last post that they wanted Our Thoughts to continue. I appreciate the support, but I really do not know if that is enough for me to keep going with Our Thoughts.

All I can say is don?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢t remove Our Thoughts off the RSS reader just yet.

  3. I know you are right about families, family is so important and you need to spend time with them as long as they need you. Ü

    So I guess everything else can wait if it needs to be because families are so importand especially your own family and your young kids as they are growing up, they need you. So rase you family and do everything else you need to do when you have time.
