A tree which offers a habitation for birds can never be immuned from the hurts of stones and bullets.
Do not expect to be free from hatred, jealousy, criticism and discouragement when you try to make productive use of your gifts for the sake of common good.
A hidden talent, unsound complaints and unheard comments cannot be evaluated.
When we unearth and make apt use of our gifts, it puts us in the limelight and exposes us to be loved or hated, accepted or rejected, and praised or criticized.
Be strengthened to face and to endure the challenges that come with your gifts.
