The talents are God’s gift to you. How you choose to use your talents is your gift to God. Here’s more good news. Your purpose in life comes from inside the bag. You don’t have to search for it. You simply discover your purpose when you find ways to use the talents in the bag to enrich the lives of others and improve the world around you. That gives your life purpose. That’s your gift back to God. Emptiness in life comes when you fail to use your talents, when you neglect, hide, or bury your talents, when you withhold what you could give to others. Fulfillment in life comes when you are generous with your talents and others benefit. And ultimate Celebration comes when your life is done and your bag is completely .....empty. Your talents have all been used. May your journey in life be a gracious one.
