Quote: Natural Abilities

~ Are “All Men Created Equal”? ~

Does Equality Mean Sameness?  

The following is an excerpt from a book.

Whatever natural talent you were born with is only the starting point in life. It takes great discipline and training to develop your physical, musical, or mental potential to its fullest. 

We as a society may value statements such as “all men are created equal,” but in reality we have unequal natural talents. We are all equal in value—since we are all “created in the image of God.” Even God is manifest in three distinctly different persons.  

You should not be surprised at this. God is the Author and Creator of variety. Examine the differences in fingerprints or snowflakes and it becomes clear that equal does not mean same! You are created of equal value and you have an equal opportunity to use your abilities to their fullest. 

~ from “THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH: Understanding God’s Will for You” by Robert Lloyd Russell, pgs 99-100 (ISBN: 9781606474303)
