Summary

God, as the Creator of man, has given every member of the human race a talent or talents with which to function in His universe. You have a talent! Every human being has a talent. Some human beings have many talents, but there is no human being without a talent. 
 
God has given each human being his talent or talents to help him to find his place in the universe, and to function readily. Discovering your talent, developing it and maximising its potential will enable you to live and function readily in the sphere of labour that God assigns to you. Leaving your talent aside and trying to acquire the talent of others and to do what they are doing or what they are supposed to do will lead to frustration. An ear cannot decide to function as an eye and succeed, neither can fishes decide to grow wings and succeed. 
 
The person who starts with one or a limited number of talents and employs these faithfully to the glory of God and the blessing of man, can ask and receive more talents from the Lord for more service. The person who does not invest his talent for God's glory and satisfaction will lose it to the one who is more faithful . Besides losing his talent, he will receive additional punishment for wasting God's talent. Consequently, all who have received talents from God are accountable to Him for what they do with what they have received. 
 
Most of the time, God allows a person to maintain his talent or talents after conversion to the Lord Jesus. Often, these are enhanced or increased in the act of conversion; so that people are capable of doing more, for the Lord Jesus after conversion, than they could do before. The talents of converted people and their spiritual gifts are to be used for the glory of God, the advancement of the Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ and the service of man. 
 
Because talents are God's special abilities that He gives to man to use for Him, they best function in those who know radical conversion and radical consecration to Him. This is because the radically converted and radically consecrated know deep-seated deliverance from sin, self, bondage, the love of the world, the love of the things of the world and all else that will stand in the way of further development and use of the God-given talents. We therefore recommend radical conversion, radical sanctification and radical consecration as the normal way of life for all who want to make the best use of their God-given talent or talents. 
 
You have a talent. 
Seek to discover it. 
Know it. 
Develop it. 
Maximize its potential. 
 
Invest it in the service of God, man and yourself, and you will be truly fulfilled. 
God bless you exceedingly!

    Handsome, headstrong Jacob offers Lilly his hand in marriage, but his heart belongs to someone else. 
    While Lilly Lapp has loved Jacob for years, she wouldn't compete with Sarah King, the woman Jacob was determined to marry. But when Sarah marries another, Jacob spontaneously agrees to wed Lilly. 
    Lilly divides her time between teaching the local Amish children and caring for her widowed mother who suffers from depression. Lilly's faith comforts her, but her heart still longs to be the sole object of Jacob's affection. 
    As the days slip by, Lilly decides that hoping is too risky and vows to protect her heart. But God is subtly as work, and as winter turns to spring, their hearts awaken. 
    The furthest thing from Lilly's mind is her Amish wedding quilt, a traditional gift for new brides. And the person she'd least suspect is the one making it. Like stray pieces of fabric quilted into a new design, Jacob and Lilly's marriage begins to bind them together in ways neither expected.

    Sepharad - A Novel

    An “amazing” novel about the diaspora of Sephardic Jews amid the tumult of twentieth century history (The Washington Post Book World). From one of Spain’s most celebrated writers, this extraordinary blend of fiction, history, and memoir tells the story of the Sephardic diaspora through seventeen interlinked chapters.   “If Balzac wrote The Human Comedy, [Antonio] Muñoz Molina has written the adventure of exile, solitude, and memory,” Arturo Pérez-Reverte observed of this “masterpiece” that shifts seamlessly from the past to the present along the escape routes employed by Sephardic Jews across countries and continents as they fled Hitler’s Holocaust and Stalin’s purges in the mid-twentieth century (The New York Review of Books).   In a remarkable display of narrative dexterity, Muñoz Molina fashions a “rich and complex story” out of the experiences of people both real and imagined: Eugenia Ginzburg and Greta Buber-Neumann, one on a train to the gulag, the other heading toward a Nazi concentration camp; a shoemaker and a nun who become lovers in a small Spanish town; and Primo Levi, bound for Auschwitz (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel). From the well-known to the virtually unknown, all of Muñoz Molina’s characters are voices of separation, nostalgia, love, and endless waiting.   “Stories that vibrate beneath the burden of history, that lift with the breath of human life.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review   “A magnificent novel about the iniquity and horror of fanaticism, and especially the human being’s indestructible spirit.” —Mario Vargas Llosa   “Moving and often astonishing.” —The New York Times
