Exodus 38: We Each Have a Variety of Talents
Sometimes we all need help from other people. We can find something similar in Exodus 38.
Exo 38:22 And Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made all that the LORD commanded Moses.
Exo 38:23 And with him was Aholiab, son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, an engraver, and a cunning workman, and an embroiderer in blue, and in purple, and in scarlet, and fine linen.
Moses may have been an excellent leader, but apparently he needed help building all of the different implements that God had commanded. He needed to then rely on the help of his friends like Bezaleel and Aholiab. They were both talented workmen who could use their hands as effectively as Moses could lead people.
Many of us are like Moses. We might be really good at something, but we all need help in other areas. For example, I am pretty good at doing my statistics homework, but if I was trying to do advanced physics, I would need assistance. However, the same physicist who might be helping me try to understand his discipline might need my help with statistical theory.
Christianity is the same way. Many people are good at many different things, and we need to each do what we can to help out in the cause of reaching people for Jesus.
1Co 12:14 For the body is not one member, but many.
1Co 12:15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
1Co 12:16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
1Co 12:17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
1Co 12:18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
If we all had the same abilities, we would never be able to complement each other and create a stronger overall body.
Pro 27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
We can all help each other out. Christians need to support each other as we try to follow God.
