Why I love Bezalel and Oholiab

“So Bezalel, Oholiab and every skilled person to whom the Lord has given skill and ability to know how to carry out all the work of constructing the sanctuary are to do the work just as the Lord has commanded.” Exodus 36:1 (NIV1984)

When I first stumbled across the euphonious names of Bezalel and Oholiab, I felt an instant kinship. I’ve worked in various arts most of my life. I was delighted to see that as early on as the construction of the tabernacle, God valued the talents of artists and craftsmen and gave them a way to use their gifts for Him.

Lord, thank You for Your gift of the arts. Whether we are writers or sculptors or dancers or actors or musicians or painters or use any other creative gift, please help us develop our skills and offer our abilities to You! Amen.
