God generously gives gifts, talents and abilities to his followers. And we have a responsibility to be productive with those gifts.
God shows His goodness to us by the gifts he gives, but he expects us to be accountable by how we use them. Nothing will compare to what we have coming to us because we are wise in what we do with what God has given us now.
The wealth of Bill Gates, the power of the President of the United States, the fame of the newest American Idol are not even close to what we will receive.
