During our last visit to Disney World, we stopped off at the Mexico pavilion and saw someone making glass figurines. It really fascinated me because (1) it’s something that I can’t do, and (2) the finished product was so incredible. I stood there for a few seconds just watching the woman shoot flames on the pieces of glass then melting and forming shapes from it.
I thought about these passages from Exodus 35:30-33, “Then Moses told the people of Israel, The Lord has specifically chosen Bezalel… giving him great wisdom, ability, and expertise in all kinds of crafts. He is a master craftsman… He is skilled in engraving and mounting gemstones and in carving wood. He is a master at every craft” (NLT).
There are so many talented people in the world, but I’m not sure if they realize that their skills and abilities have come from God. I am not always thankful for the abilities God has given me, and most of the time I take them for granted. Psalm 139:14 reminds me that God has made me into who I am today and all my gifts and talents come from Him. Thank you, God!
