Everyone Is Talented

The talents God gives each one of us may be hidden from our mortal view, but they are known to the divine Mind. And when we learn of what God has given us, things happen to us. We find we can do things we didn't know we could do, and our whole outlook on life changes. Some people discover hobbies in which they can excel. Others find their daily work taking on new aspects in which talents come to light. But everyone can gain a better, freer, happier sense of himself by becoming acquainted with the divine Mind and its idea, the real, spiritual man.

God, infinite Spirit, does not give talents to some and not to others. In the Bible, Peter says, "I perceive that God is no respecter of persons." Acts 10:34; To recognize one's own talents, one needs a sense of the creator's impartial love. Some individuals think of themselves as specially endowed, but unless one's endowments are of God, they are temporal, false. And one who recognizes his God-given talents has no use for the pride that a limited concept of man supports. In fact, really successful men and women of talent express themselves in ways that help others to realize the universal nature of talent.
