The most talented people need to be the most humble. Ability can be developed through hard work, but true talent is a gift from God.
The clarity of this scripture from James 1:17 is as pure as the concept itself. All that you have, and every fiber of your being comes from the Divine. It is not yours to be proud of; it's simply your responsibility to use it wisely.
People change, they live, and they die. God is unchanging and everlasting.
