Read Luke 19:12-27

12. He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.

13. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

14. But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.

15. And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.

16. Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.

17. And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.

18. And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.

19. And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.

20. And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:

21. For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.

22. And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:

23. Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?

24. And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.

25. (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

26. For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.

27. But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.

MEMORISE: A man’s gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men (Proverbs 18:16)


Talents are your latent qualities, or abilities that, when developed, will lead to future success, or usefulness. They are natural innate abilities bestowed freely on man by God. They are the capacities in you that make you develop into someone great in life. They are your inner strength. Each person on earth is endowed with at least, one talent with which he/she is expected to affect his world positively.

Joseph was equally a young man when he discovered his gift of interpretation of dreams (Gen. 39). He had the potential to become an administrator, and he did that well. David was a youth when he discovered and developed his talents – composing songs, skilful harp-playing, shepherding, warfare, warfare, and poetic writing. His talents actually made way for him.

God has deposited that seed (talents) in you that will open an excellent door of greatness for your life. It is already in you, but you need to discover and develop it before it will announce you to your generation. Some people are endowed with talents of writing, drawing, singing, acting drama, playing instrument or even writing scripts for drama. Discover yours today, and begin to work on them. Remember, God will not do for you what He has already given you the ability to do.

Awake your inner man. Take full responsibility for your life in the Lord, because your world awaits your manifestation. Leave a positive impact here before you go. Do not waste the grace of God upon your life.


1. Father, open my eyes to that seed of greatness that You have deposited in my life.

2. Lord, I refuse to waste Your heavenly resources upon my life; help me to make good use of them.

3. Lord, equip Your church with more of the needed spiritual gifts as of old. Cause us to experience You in a supernatural way, in our churches.
