“You are accountable to [your Heavenly Father] for what you do with your talents and how you spend your time.” – For the Strength of Youth
Today and for the rest of the segment, I, ____________________, commit to develop my talents and abilities.
“President Joseph F. Smith said, “Every son and every daughter of God has received some talent, and each will be held to strict account for the use or misuse to which it is put” (Gospel Doctrine, 5th ed. , 370). A talent is one kind of stewardship (responsibility in the kingdom of God). The parable of the talents tells us that when we serve well in our stewardship, we will be given greater responsibilities. If we do not serve well, our stewardship will eventually be taken from us. (See Matthew 25:14–30.)” – Gospel Principle, (2011), 196-99 – Chapter 34: Developing Our Talents
