“Then Moses said to the Israelites, “See, the Lord has chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood and to engage in all kinds of artistic crafts.”
Exodus 35:30-33 NIV
“All those who were skilled among the workers made the tabernacle with ten curtains of finely twisted linen and blue, purple and scarlet yarn, with cherubim woven into them by expert hands.”
Exodus 36:8 NIV
40 Things to Give Up for a Better Life
#4 Devaluing my talents
God created each of us with unique abilities, and He wants to use us. Every time I read these chapters in Exodus, it makes me smile. God values the artist. There is a place for me (and you) to be useful in his plan, whether I am writing, drawing, knitting or crocheting.
What talents do you have? God gave them to you. Use them with confidence.
