Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

Bezalel & Oholiab—who?

Some of my heroes are Bezalel & Oholiab, two very talented guys who knew how to make all kinds of beautiful things.  In fact, God gave them these abilities  for one purpose:  to craft a beautiful place where He would meet His people.  (See Exodus 35:30-35 and following.)  He also gave them the ability to train others in these skills.

“Goldsmith” or “sculptor” or “embroiderer” can’t be found in the lists of spiritual gifts in the New Testament, nor can “singer” or “instrumentalist.”  (1 Chronicles 15:16.)But I love to see how God gave people these gifts for the purposes of serving Him.

It doesn’t matter if my gifting doesn’t occur in the NT lists.  I can still delight in what God has given me for serving Him.  So I will sing with my whole heart and play the piano for my Audience of One.
