Using Our Skills

Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank.  Proverbs 22:29 NIV

Imagine an artist who created works of starting eloquence, skill, ingenuity, and efficiency.

He was a musician and a son of a known blacksmith in the lowliest town in the kingdom. Yet with skillful and wise persistence and determination, he was trained and taught and constantly honed his craft. Through constant performance and opportunity, his skill and ability to perform became known far and wide.

Word of his skill was eventually caught by a lord under the king himself. The lord brought the young man into his presence, and he immediately noted his skill. Then, the young man was brought before the king. He, too, was impressed and invited the young man to play for him and his subjects. The young man’s dream had come true.

God gives wisdom abundantly to those who seek and ask Him for it. If the Lord has developed skills in us that will promote us, we can take this as a sign of His blessings. Our skill and hard work are eventually noted by others.

We should continue to develop and discipline ourselves so we can use our skills for God’s glory. In all circumstances, God wants us to seek both His Word and His will. Then we can delight ourselves in Him.

Are you using your skills for God’s glory?
