Standing up and being myself

1 Timothy 4:

"Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy with the laying on of hands of the presbytery"

Do not ignore your talents, that was given to you by prophecy and the laying on of hands of priests.

Matthew 25-parable of talents

The Lord gave everyone some talents, one person got 5, one person got 2, and one person got 1. The person with 5 doubled it by working, the person with 2 doubled it by working, but the person person with 1 hid it so no one could take it. The guy with 10 went to heaven and got more talents there, same with the guy with 4. The guy with 1 still was sent to outer darkness. Therefore I should be myself and show all my talents and work for new talents so I can have more talents in heaven.

Matthew 16:27-

"For the Son of Man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works"

Jesus Christ will come down with all glory and shall give every man everything he deserves according to what he did in life. Therefore I should do good things in life.

D and C 46:8-11

"11 8 Wherefore, beware lest ye are deceived; and that ye may not be deceived seek ye earnestly the best gifts, always remembering for what they are given;

9 For verily I say unto you, they are given for the benefit of those who love me and keep all my commandments, and him that seeketh so to do; that all may be benefited that seek or that ask of me, that ask and not for sign that they may consume it upon their lusts.

10 And again, verily I say unto you, I would that ye should always remember, and always retain in your minds what those gifts are, that are given unto the church.

11 For all have not every gift given unto them; for there are many gifts, and to every man is given a gift by the Spirit of God."

Be careful because you can be tricked unless you work hard to find good gifts. Gifts are given to you for the benefit of God loving people and people who follow his commandments, and not to ask for signs. No one has every gift, but every one has a gift given to him.Therefor I should understand my gifts and know which gifts I have

Matthew 5 14- 16

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Somethings that are important that shouldn't be hid. People don't waste something useful they use it so it can benefit people. Let people see your talents so it could benefit a lot of people.Therefore I should show all my talents for the benefit of others and myself.
