Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
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.
