People are praised for their qualities of wisdom, intelligence, fairness, kindness or generosity. But they did not create these qualities; they received them through entities that have been given by God the task of manifesting his infinite wealth.

Of course, they have to make an effort themselves to receive what the entities have to give them. They have to apply themselves to deserve to possess these qualities – but that is all; they cannot do any more.
Humans are mistaken when they imagine that what they possess originates with them, that they created it.

In reality, they only have the ability to receive these gifts, and when they have received them they must try to increase them and become conductors for them, in other words allow others to benefit from them too.
