Knowledge 2

Knowledge 2

"In your journal list talents you have and others you would like to develop. Read Matthew 25:14–30. Learn a new skill or talent that will help you care for your own future family or home (for example, playing the piano, singing, budgeting, time management, cooking, sewing, or child care). Share with your family, class, or Young Women leader what you have learned."



For this experience, I did a Safe Sitter class. So far, none of my babysitting clients have asked if I'm certified (or really cared) but, you know, it helped me get a personal progress experience done, so it's all good.

I remember helping my mom sort through her old file cabinets. She had all sorts of things in that thing, from recipes, to life hacks, to inspirational quotes. ("This was before the Internet, dear," she said.)
One that struck me was this:
"The woods would be a very quiet place if only the best birds sang."

I think that's especially important and relevant to the subject of talents. Are you familiar with the parable of the talents? Watch the Bible Video here.

Often times, we, especially with low confidence, may be tempted or even sad enough to hide our talents. But they've been given to us for a reason: to develop and share them! "Practice makes perfect" is an often-used saying, but I prefer the saying "Practice makes better" (And if it's grammatically incorrect, we'll push it aside!) We'll never be perfect, but if we try our best to develop them and share them, we can soar to heights we can never imagine. Remember, the master was equally happy with both men that grew their talents, even if they grew them to different final amounts!

I decided to make an additional picture quote, and of course, the Ponderize picture quote as usual. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ Hope you enjoy.


See you next Sunday!
