There is a story about 3 people. No names or much to describe them other than they were servants. These 3 were given money by the person in charge of the house. What they did with them is the reason for the story. Two of them turn the money into more money. The other dug it into the ground and gave it right back to the boss just the way they received it, maybe with a bit of dirt on it too. Now, as a modern day Jeddist, we each have our "talents." Some of us have a way with things that dwarf others. Our ability's arnt limited to our faith but rather the potential that dwells in each of us. The human potential dwells in each of us. Our faith and titles and those around just benefit from them. What ya doing with your talent? What ya doing with what is worth ... in you? In this day and time- in the real world, do we put our ideas in the dirt because they arnt like the others or the ever famous-"Im not like them?" Im here to tell you today- with 7.7 BILLION others, you and your talent is enough and you CANT be like every one else. Don't try. Be you. In all the entire world there is only you and you are enough. Your talents are who make you , you. Measuring talents by others is a very good way to see things as they are not. Regardless of what we choose to be, our talents can be used, maximized or hidden. The choice is always ours. May the Force be with yall and may you find it as we all seek serve and share it.

Thank you for this sermon. I struggle from time to time with valuing my talents frequently judging myself against others. I will work on being the best ME I can be.

I found this sermon very useful, Carlos. It led to a lot of personal reflection.

It is likely that all of us, excepting possibly the most severely disabled, come into life with more talents than we will have time and energy to express in one single lifetime. Yet, the circumstances of our lives often suppress the expression of those talents more than the limits of time and energy. Our cultural influences, tendencies toward conditions like anxiety or depression, and fears about our ability to sustain ourselves at the same time we pursue the brightest visions within our hearts all can inhibit us greatly, sometimes even leading an older person to look back and sadly say "I wasted my life."

Buckminster Fuller, one of the most inspiring souls to which I've been exposed, once said, "Everyone is born a genius, but the process of living de-geniuses them."

I sure feel like I could have done better up to now. Fortunately, there are more nows ahead of me, and there is still a chance to improve. This has been a day of inspiration for me toward this end, and your sermon was part of it. Thank you!

Carlos, thanks for your Fire and for this story, it is a good point of reflection, to let passivity into action and contribute in my own style. I will bring more creativity to amplify the harmony here and in my surroundings.

Carlos, thanks for your Fire and for this story, it is a good point of reflection, to let passivity into action and contribute in my own style. I will bring more creativity to amplify the harmony here and in my surroundings.

My talents? Were do they started?
I now feel grateful to all my different teachers throughout my life. And I cannot imagine all the acts that I have received from: friendship, patience, nobility, wisdom, love and trust. That "look" that made me feel that I was worth something important. In my childhood and adolescence, that starting point was what allowed me to know that I could evolve as a human being and create some skills.

Also I noticed something, another edge from the story: Why the third character returns the money?
It could also have a positive nuance: Return the help to who helped me in the past.

Thank you
