Are you old enough to remember this–when Jimmie led the original Mouseketeers in a rip-roarin’ dancing, singing musical celebration of our God-Given Talent?
Oh, the Mickey Mouse Club wasn’t a religious program, so it wasn’t really a prayer–but then again, it was.
Someone gave those young gals and guys a whopping big dose of talent and personality, and the Mouseketeers–all of them, not just Jimmie, who sang that line–knew that they needed to work to maximize the gift.
In those happy days of olde, children would most certainly have recognized the parable of the talents, and would have understood that they, too, had a responsibility to utilize their unique gifts and talents.
As we continue through the years, we won’t forget the Mouseketeers!
