In this life God grants us many gifts. It is not as much about what the gift is as it is what we do with that gift. Sometimes we may put the gift away, in other words we may unintentionally neglect our gift(s). It is like a kid getting their most prized gift for their birthday but within a week later they are careless with it and may leave it lying around or even misplace it.
Though we may place our gifts on a shelf for a little bit, in this life we must be very careful to revisit our gift, dust it offf and treat it as a fine gem or priceless collectible, as God would have it.
