Exodus 35-36 B

“Then Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every skillful person in whom the LORD had put skill, everyone whose heart stirred him, to come to the work to perform it.” (36:2‬)

Have you ever had the pleasure of being a part of a skillful collaboration? It truly feels divine.

It is a glorious thing to be gifted with skill and talent from the LORD, when you have opportunity to use it. Otherwise, it can feel like a burden to bear. I feel I’m always looking for outlets for my talent and most certainly I prefer collaborating. When I’m able to utilize my gifting, I feel alive in a way nothing else does. When I forget these parts of me, and busy myself with tasks outside my wheelhouse, I feel very blah indeed.

The LORD is glorified in our creativity and exercise of skill. Especially when it’s collaborative, edifying and serving the greater whole.

How can we get creative about using our skills, gifts and talents to love God and others? What has He made you good at? Let’s take His handiwork in us and make this world a more beautiful place.
