[Scriptures] Isaiah 11:3-9
3) and he will delight in the fear of the Lord.
He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes,
or decide by what he hears with his ears;
4) but with righteousness he will judge the needy,
with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.
He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth;
with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked.
5) Righteousness will be his belt
and faithfulness the sash around his waist.
6) The wolf will live with the lamb,
the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion and the yearling[a] together;
and a little child will lead them.
7) The cow will feed with the bear,
their young will lie down together,
and the lion will eat straw like the ox.
8) The infant will play near the cobra’s den,
and the young child will put its hand into the viper’s nest.
9) They will neither harm nor destroy
on all my holy mountain,
for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord
as the waters cover the sea.
15) To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey.
Hallelujah! I pray that all of you will be filled abundantly with the love of the eternal Holy Father God and the peace of the Holy Son.
When you look at various <grains> such as rice, barley, wheat, sorghum, millet, various peas, red beans, and others, each of them has different 'individuality' according to their looks. And according to their individuality, each of them has different 'looks' and 'traits.' They have different 'flavors' and different ‘nutritional values' as well.
The same is true with <people>. Each individual person has different 'individuality,' different 'looks,' and different 'talents.' All people possess <individuality and talents> that are exclusively theirs.
<Individuality and talents> are the 'special privilege that God gave to each person.
There is only one <you> in this earthly world. This is your ‘individuality.’ You will exhibit your ‘talents’ on that foundation. Also, in this world, there is only one person who will exhibit ‘those talents,’ and it is you.
When it comes to individuality and talents that are in you, ‘you, yourself,’ are the king. Therefore, only ‘you, yourself’ can do it.You must make <your individuality and talents> ‘your hope and wealth,’ and live your life taking action according to your individuality and talents. Then you will succeed.
You will come to exhibit ‘many different talents’ as much as you develop yourself. When you look at the people who hold and shake the world, all of them take action by developing their ‘individuality and talents’ even more. That is why other people cannot do the work in that specialty area.
If you develop yourself even more according to your individuality, you will surely succeed at the work you want to do. However, you must do it till the end.
Everyone, after hearing today’s message, I pray that you will ask for and find <your individuality, talents, and traits> and take action until the end so that you can become 'kings of individuality.'
