Matthew 25:15

"To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability."

Sometimes we get disappointed with our own ministries because we try to spend five talents when we've only been given one.  We can easily stretch ourselves too thin, trying to do everything but being effective at nothing.  Sometimes we even try to do too much at a time and we end up exhausted with a pile of things all over the floor.

God has indeed gifted some more than he's gifted others, each according to their ability, but there is no reason to be jealous and to try and act as if we are more capable than we are.  God has given us only what we can handle!  This is a blessing to delight in, not a reason to covet the blessedness of others.  So what if you cannot physically do as much as others or you cannot speak as well as others, God has only ever asked of you to do the best with what you have been given.  You can still be an encourager, a prayer warrior, a companion to the poor and destitute, and a friend of sinners.

Remember that no one owns the talents they work with, all of it is a gift from God, so keep watch as he might return at any day.  Remember that the worst thing you can do is not to do anything.
