Many Mansions

Where would you like to locate your "dream home'? Why? (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, page 1444).

Today (Saturday) my friend who is a Jehovah's Witness came by for our Saturday afternoon discussion.  I think there is no doubt that his "dream home" would be any home on earth during the 1,000 year reign of Christ on earth--a time of health, prosperity, and peace.  My friend has a keen interest in the wide-ranging analysis of Scripture prophecy relating to the end time and thereafter.  He manifests a strong interest and passion for such matters.  Today our contrasting predilections surfaced during our discussion. It reminded me of an English literature class in which we all read the same literary work and at the end of which we have the assignment to turn in a 20 page theme paper on a subject of our own choosing relating to the work.  Depending upon one's natural interests and talents, some would have a propensity to passionately write about character development; some would write on the intricacies of story development and plot, others might choose to research milieu, others would write on theme development--each student writing according to the predilections of their own interests and talents--each writing about what they were energized to write about arising from keen interest and passion--their "calling" so to speak.

The diverse gifts of talents and interests can be illustrated by the simple fact that some can spend hours playing chess with great intensity and focus, while others show little interest in the game.  Thankfully, the world is big enough to accommodate all interests while overall productivity and well-being are advanced by such diversity of talents and interests.
