“And the Lord said, ‘Who then is the faithful and sensible steward, whom his master will put in charge of his servants, to give them their rations at the proper time’” (Luke 12:42)?
The sensible expectation is that each of us will develop and utilize the talents and spiritual gifts entrusted to us. The work that God desires to see accomplished on this earth will not be carried out by faultless, extraordinary, and unusually abled individuals but, rather, flawed, common people with common abilities, uncommonly enabled by the Holy Spirit. In other words, the likes of me and you. The life of service to which we are called isn’t a matter of prayerfully waiting until we are properly equipped before doing something; it’s because we are already powerfully equipped by the Spirit that we need to be doing something.
