Too many people in the world worry about the business of others, as opposed to tending to their own business. Jealousy and envy has destroyed many people, which sometimes results in the loss of life, both spiritually and physically. Most people do not know what their own purpose in the world is, simply because they are too busy trying to find ways to destroy the lives of those who are working and living in their purpose. When one is living and working in their purpose, there is nothing that anyone can do to destroy them. This person is "Divinely Protected." One who is working in their purpose is utilizing their God-given gifts and talents to positively and productively affect the world. From the day of your birth, every single person on earth is given specific gifts and talents by God. It is your sole responsibility during your lifetime, to find your purpose. This is the only responsibility of mankind. You cannot get upset at or be jealous and envious of someone whom is walking in the Light of God, wishing misfortune upon them. The more destruction you wish upon them, the more "their table will be prepared in the presence of their enemies." This person will be continuously blessed tremendously in your presence. This person is using their God-given gifts and talents for what they are originally intended. If you were busy nurturing your own God-given gifts and talents and finding your own purpose, you simply would not have the time to be worried about what someone else is doing; therefore, trying to find ways to destroy another person's life. You have become blinded in your endeavor of destruction upon others, that you cannot see that you will die without ever having discovered the true YOU.

Most people want what someone else has. These feelings of coveting is the reason why most people die away from the world without ever having discovered their purpose or having ever utilized their God-given gifts and talents. If God wanted you to have what the next person has, you would have been given a similar gift and talent to be used in a different way. No two people will ever be the same. Not even twins are the same. They may look alike, feel each other's pain, etc., but they were individually born. They may even have the same gift and talent, but I assure you they use their same gifts and talents in different ways. Some people are given similar gifts and talents to be used in different ways as the Scripture states, "Now there are a variety, but the same Spirit. For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office; having then gifts differing according to the grace given to us. As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. A man's gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men."

Every single person exists on the earth for different reasons; however, your individual contribution of your specific gifts and talents for the cohesive functioning of the earth was already preordained. You have something special that God gave you specifically to do and no one can do it the way that you can. When you are busy trying to be like someone else, you miss your entire chance of discovering your true self; thus, not ever utilizing your God-given gifts and talents to contribute to the world. When you do not use your God-given gifts and talents, they are taken completely away from you and it is your own fault. Refer yourselves to the" Book of Matthew, 25th Chapter" and read the story of the "Talents." The man which God gave five talents, this man used his talents and God blessed him with five more talents, but the man whom God gave one talent, this man went and hid his one talent and did not use it. God took this man's one talent away and gave it to the man with the ten talents. As the Scriptures states, "Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. For unto everyone that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."

What have you productively done to earn your place in the New World? Are you taking up space or are you utilizing what God naturally gave you, to contribute to the whole?
