Get All the Glory

The nomadic Israelites worshiped God in a tent—of gold, silver, bronze, stone, fine woods, and leathers. To create the tent and its lavish furnishings, God appointed Bezalel—a skilled craftsman trained in Egypt.

Meanwhile, God chose Ithamar to keep track of the precious metals the artists used. Ithamar received the donations of personal jewelry.

Which work sounds more glamorous to you—Bezalel’s art or Ithamar’s inventory?

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. Some jobs are high-profile and require creativity. Others are obscure and require consistency. Whether building or bookkeeping, God gives us work that matters. And we give him our best . . . in the high calling of our daily work.

"See, I have chosen Bezalel . . . 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." (Ex. 31:2-5)
