I love that in the parable, a talent was a coin.
I love that this equates talents, gifts, to currency.
I love the concept that your true value, your spiritual bank balance, if you like, takes account of talents.
Do you have a talent for making people feel comfortable, making them smile, helping them to see beauty, helping them to feel hope, or love?
Do you have a talent for finding the soft chink in the scars of a hardened heart and reaching the long buried hope?
Happy Easter! You are rich.
Use your talents, its multiplies them.
Can you tell I've gone all Easterish? :-)
