Cultivated Talents

Talents are like seeds
not yet germinated.
Needing assistance
as they are cultivated.

A seed requires light,
heat, and nutrients to grow;
talents require action,
dedication, and gusto.

Provided is abundance
in an universe of galaxies.
Each with billions of stars;
it seems without boundaries.

Although there is abundance
in the world in which we exist,
we must see plenty in ourselves
and be willing to persist.

There is untapped potential
in each and every one
and using your talents to the max
will benefit the world a ton.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
