Our talents are the gifts that God gives us… what we make of our talents is our gift back to God – Leo Buscgalia
The Voice Of Mandate
EVERYTHING that God created speaks loud. The heavens, even the heavens of heavens and the earth speak in a distinctive voice. The Psalmist eulogised the beauty of creation when he said:
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork.
Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard (Psalms 19:1-3)
The dawn of a new day is marked by light and the dusk is marked by darkness. The creation of God speaks according to the signature of God upon them. The mandate is the signature, which also depicts its glory.
“There is one glory of the sun and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory” (1 Corinthians 15:41)
The glory of the sun is to give light for the day; the glory of the moon is to brighten the night. The stars also shine in their capacity in the night, but different from the moon. The sun, the moon, and the stars shine in their circles without competing with one another, even among the stars, their glories differ.
The trees are not left out; they speak according to their fruits.
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles? Matthew 7:16
The fruits in turn speak according to the usage man puts them to. Trees do not only produce fruits, but some also become major raw materials for the production of things, such as furniture and even in the manufacturing of various products.
The mandate of a thing is the purpose of the thing. It is the assignment or mission it was created to do. Everything God made behaves according to its design. The waters brought forth moving creations that have life, whose habitation must be in the water. The birds fly above the earth. The living creatures the beast, the cattle, and every creeping thing that creepeth on the earth.
And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creatures that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
And God created great whales and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
…And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and everything that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:20-25
The conclusion of every creation was approval from God “…and God saw that it was good” (Genesis 1:30).
As they are formed, they are aligned with their mandate. There was no competition with anybody, nor was any of them intimidated by the presence of the glory of another. They just live out their uniqueness.
When God was going to display the uniqueness of man, he was blessed and commanded to be fruitful, multiply, replenish, subdue and have dominion.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created him; male and female created he them
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over every living thing that moveth upon the earth (Genesis 1:27-28)
