I learned something new in Sunday School today. We discussed the parable of the talents, and our teacher pointed out that the men had been given the talents for a short period of time until the lord came again, and they would present them back to him at that time.
So it is with the talents the Lord has given us. He will come again and ask us how we did with His talents.
They are on loan to us, to increase them during our stay on earth. If we do our very best with them, we will be called good and faithful servants, and receive all that He has to give.
That puts things in a new light for me. I've always recognized that talents come from God, but I've never before made the link that they are still His, that they are in my keeping only for a short period of time. Wow!
I'm glad I'm still learning lessons at my stage of life. I hope we all can.
