The parable of the talents reminds us that God gives everyone something to offer. No one completely lacks gifts to share.

The gifts that God gives me are investments on His part. I am made the way that I am for a particular purpose. Have I discerned my gifts and placed them at the service of others?

O gracious God, I thank you for making me in your image and likeness. Grant me a holy curiosity to discover my gifts and a generous heart to place them at the service of others.
