God Blames us when we Don't use our Abilities for Him

Jeremiah 5:21"Hear this, O foolish and senseless people, who have eyes, but see not, who have ears, but hear not.

This passage implies the Israelites were able to see and hear but refused to do so. God gave them the ability but they didn’t use it. Not only could they do otherwise, but they should have. We are accountable to God for how we use the freedom and ability He gave us.

That passage echoes Jesus' words in the Parable of the Ten Talents in addition to others where He said, if I recall, "Every one to whom much is given, of him will much be required; and of him to whom men commit much they will demand the more (Luke 12:48)."
