Talents are abilities, which are inherent in the human spirit. The human spirit comes with talents in an undeveloped form. He is meant to develop them through personal experience in the material world. If he develops them fully in the right manner he may then be allowed to use these developed talents for the further development of Creation as a fully self-conscious human spirit. If he fails to develop his talents, or develops them in the wrong direction, he is then not in a position to return as a fully self-conscious human spirit. His talents will be taken from him and he will then cease to be.
Talents are gifts which must be used for the honour of God in the further ennoblement of what exists. There is no other reason for which they are given. The ability to use one’s talents for the glorification of God is one of the most joyous things that can fall to the lot of any human spirit. Let us therefore seek to discover what our talents are and use them properly to honour God, lest they be taken from us.
