When we see others succeeding in their chosen fields, we may want very much to be successful in developing and using our own talents and abilities. The desire for fulfillment is common to all.
However, many feel that a successful, happy life is beyond their hopes and dreams. Perhaps a background of poverty has limited their education; perhaps other conditions have robbed them of their self-confidence and initiative. They may feel that laborious, routine jobs are all they are qualified for.
But Christ Jesus assures us that God is our only Father and that He loves us. Jesus specifically teaches that fulfillment is not only possible to all but is required of us. He says, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." Matt. 5:48; Since God is eternally active, this ideal state naturally includes right activity, or the complete expression of our God-given talents.
