Using our talent: spiritual sense

No one actually lacks spiritual sense. Each one of us possesses the natural, innate, God-given ability—even more, the power—to know Love's nature, Love's allness, and Love's will for man. "Spiritual sense is a conscious, constant capacity to understand God," Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p.209; writes Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science.

In Jesus' parable of three servants, each of whom was given talents—five, two, and one respectively—those who were given two and five talents used theirs and increased them twofold. But he who was given one talent buried his to keep it, and it was taken from him. Are we nurturing and using our talent of spiritual sense? We do so as we daily strive to love, live, and prove all that we now understand of God's nature, no matter how slight that understanding may seem.
