The Heaviest Burden

"God places the heaviest burden on those who can carry its weight."
-- Reggie White

So true. God expects a great deal from us, but not more than He believes we can handle. This quote from the late former NFL defensive end Reggie White, known to some as the "Minister of Defense" because of his spirituality, sums things up nicely.

Let Our Light Shine

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

--Marianne Williamson

This incredibly inspirational quote was used by Nelson Mandela during his inaugural speech in 1994. Maryanne Williamson lays it all out here, letting us know that it's okay to use the gifts and the light God gives us each day - even if it seems overwhelming at times. We help others by shining brightly.

Talents Are a Gift

"Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God."

-- Leo Buscaglia

Buscaglia is explaining in this quote that God gives each of us a unique talent, something that we can use to give back to the world in some way. That is his gift, plain and simple. How we choose to use (or not use) this gift speaks to our beliefs.
