I read in an old magazine that men will become extinct in some thousand years’ time because there is something wrong with their Y chromosome. I don’t claim to have understood the article but the fact is men will become extinct.

This is terrible news. If men became extinct then who will catch the spiders when they fall in the bath?

Men have a special talent for that sort of thing.

Jesus tells us a story about talents. You can read it in Matthew 25:14.

It’s about a rich man who gives his servants different sums of money depending on their ability. A while later he checks on them, and finds that two servants had invested the money and earned more. The third servant however had hid the money and it did not grow one penny.

Obviously the rich man was very disappointed with the servant who had not used the money to earn more.

The moral of this story is that we all have talents for something or other. Music, sport, business or whatever.

What is your talent in life? Are you using it to the Glory of God?



God bless you.
