Were all wise or famous people talented? Did wise people make their own talent? Talent is something that gives you more opportunity to do something than others but, it does not mean that talent is the only key to success”,we should not confuse talent with spiritual success. Talent is the 10% of wisdom, while 90% of wisdom is hard-working “(anonym) from this we understand that , although talent is delivered uniquely to all people it can be compensated by our inquisitiveness or diligence. There are similarities and differences between talent and spiritual gifts .both are gifts from God .Both grow in effectiveness with use .Both are intended to be used on behalf of others , not for selfish purpose .Spiritual gifts are given to benefit others and not ourselves .As the two great commandments deal with loving God and others ,it follows that one should use his talent for those purposes . But to whom and when talents and spiritual gifts are given differs. A person (regardless of his belief in God) is given a natural talent as a result of a combination of genetics (some have natural ability in music ,art ,or mathematics ) and surroundings (growing up in musical family will aid in developing a talent for music), or because God desired to endow certain individuals with certain talents. Ultimately , a talent is the genetics and training ,while a spiritual gift is the result of the power of the God. Eventually , no matter we have talent or spiritual gift we should be humble for it .People should enrich their talent or spiritual gifts with their inquisitiveness and diligence ,because talent or spiritual gift given to people is not for them , people are obliged to use their talent in best way to other people especially for their nation, for their motherland.
