A few thoughts from Chuck Proudfit with the Marketplace Minute™ . . .
What a blessing it is that our work world is filled with gifted architects, physicians, plumbers, teachers, governors, scientists and farmers, to name just a few.
God created us with a diversity of gifts so we could offer a diversity of blessings. When we submit to God’s call on our work, we can begin harnessing God’s gifts for our work.
It’s just like in Exodus 31:1-5, when God says to Moses . . . “I have chosen Bezalel, son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts – 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 craftsmanship.”
Let’s praise God for the privilege of being His craftsmanship!
- In your work life, where has God given you skills, abilities and knowledge?
- Do you have an “attitude of gratitude” for the work God created you to fulfill?
Dear Lord, just as You chose Bezalel for important work, You have chosen us as well. Help us grab hold of this privilege, and hold fast to You every step of the way.
At work on Your purposes - Amen
