Yesterday, I wrote about 3 myths most all of us believe. For each myth, I followed up with a truth statement. Well, for those of you "if it is not in the Bible types" below is an example of those myths being torn apart by a team of Israelites coming together to build the Tabernacle. After being delivered from slavery, the Israelites were given instruction by God to build a pretty elaborate Tabernacle. In Exodus 31, we read that "God appointed, by name, 2 men who were filled with God's wisdom and Spirit and ability in every craft ..." (v. 1-11) The point here is that these two men used their God-given unique gifts to help the team of Israelites. Think about it, these 2 guys were around long before the building of the Tabernacle and we never hear a word about them. But when it came time to start building and finding skilled craftsman...TA-DA! This is the way it should be. Paul the Apostle says that the Church is like a body and that although the body is one it is made up of many parts (I Cor. 12). The 2 men mentioned in Exodus were using their unique skills to better the team.
What are your unique skills?
What have others told you about yourself that confirms this skill?Now, find a way to utilize that skill. When God entrusts you with a gift, He does so in order that you may use it in His Kingdom work. Just like Bezalel and Oholiab did.
