Drawing from the Parable of the Talents in the New Testament, Elder Rasband spoke of the importance of individuals identifying the talents they have been blessed with and then increasing those talents.
"Sometimes we have a fear of using our talents," he said. "We use excuses such as 'I know I can't do that,' or 'Someone else can do it much better than I,' or 'Those listening to me, or watching me, will criticize and judge me.' "
Elder Rasband reminded the audience that it is through discovering and building upon talents that individuals are able to build the kingdom on Earth and do the Lord's work.
