The Intent of This Blog

This blog is intended to be a tool for the growth of whoever wants to use it. It is a daily journal intended to help us be more introspective. Every day I will do my best to supply a motivational quote, a Bible verse, a vocabulary word, and a personal message from myself. Use these if you like as motivation to improve yourself. Then, simply answer the daily questions provided honestly and see if it has an impact on your life. Zig Ziglar said, "If you don't have daily objectives, you qualify as a dreamer." Lets not be just dreamers but doers. Remember Martin Luther King Jr not only had a dream, he also had an objective. Thanks for reading, Jake

A Talent for Others


Hide not your talents. They, for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?” Benjamin Franklin

His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’” Matthew 25:21

Metier: “an occupation or activity that one is good at” New Oxford American Dictionary

We all have unique talents that if properly used could make us successful people. But I don't want to talk about success right now. I want to talk about using talent for others. We could listen all day long to people telling us how to find our talents, harness them, then let them cultivate our careers for success. And there is nothing wrong with that; like the parable teaches, we should all absolutely try to use our talents to the best of our abilities. But there come's a point where it becomes important to live for something more than ourselves. It is my belief, putting a smile on someone else's face is the best way to put one on ours. Talents are a gift from God, realizing that, can turn a simple ability into a conduit for God's blessings and gifts to others. How cool is that? And maybe I really do want to talk about success right now. Because what is success if doesn't benefit others?
