At sunrise I glimpsed through the tall trees and saw the sun peep through the foliage of various trees. I stood admiring its rays streaming through to me.
And behold, I saw the spider’s web. It may sound so mundane, a web, which every household seeks to banish away for the clean look. However, this was extraordinary.
The sun’s rays shone through the web and it glistened like diamonds in the sun. The exquisite work and design of the spider struck me. Surely it was not waiting to be applauded for such beautiful work. Yet this was a masterpiece.
I reflected about the gifts and talents that so many of us have and are still in the process of discovering. Do I wait for approval from others or should I revel in them and bring out the best in what has been gifted to me.
What matters most, is that I do my best, like the spider. At the end of the day, my contribution is for a purpose, and once that is fulfilled , it really does not matter about the accolades or brickbats.
Any talent grows when it is used for the common good of those around us.
Let us not glorify ourselves , but be grateful and glorify the One who freely gives us these abilities, talents and skills .
There are many master pieces waiting to be discovered!
