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. Discovering your talent, developing it and maximizing its potential will enable you to live and function in the sphere of labor that God assigns to you. Leaving your talent aside and trying to acquire the talent of others 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.

The author has expounded on the topic beyond measures. A real ministry to the inside. I would confess that I got on this book because I took a personal commitment to read each and every writing of this author. After reading it, I think that commitment has been strengthened.
He has covered all the corners of the topic. Questions kept on arising in my mind and I would find the answers in the chapters that followed. One question left though: How to manage myself if I am multitalented?
Of course he answered it, but I need more light on that.
In this book, I discover how much of a normal and social person the author is. He is contemporary here and what his says can be applied now and everywhere. For example, when he talks about the role of the woman and the use of her talents.
Also, take the example of unfinished projects. That is one of my beasts. Zacharias Tanee Fomum through this book has encouraged me to finish my projects. I know I will because it is God's desire as he explains. I have so so much to review about from this book but I would advise everyone to go in there for themselves.
