Daily D – Exodus 31:1-5
Exodus 31:1-5 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Look, I have specifically chosen Bezalel son of Uri, grandson of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. I have filled him with the Spirit of God, giving him great wisdom, ability, and expertise in all kinds of crafts. He is a master craftsman, expert in working with gold, silver, and bronze. He is skilled in engraving and mounting gemstones and in carving wood. He is a master at every craft!” (NLT)
What craft have you mastered? What do you do better than ten thousand others? How has God smiled on your life that makes others smile with deep joy?
Our son-in-law is a lot like Bezalel. He has the gift of seeing what is not and turning it into reality. I love watching his mind work. I have helped him with some of his projects. When I say I helped him, what I mean is I stood around and handed him things when he needed them and they were otherwise out of his reach.
Our black dog is an alarm clock. Even when I need to sleep later than normal due to illness or unusual fatigue, I cannot doze past 6:30. This is when Millie eats breakfast. She comes to my side of the bed, places her front paws gently on the mattress, and softly licks my ear. There are worse wake-up calls.
What do you do that brings joy and delight to others? This is a gift of God. He empowers you to create beautiful things to enrich the lives of others. Good work well done is a testimony of God’s grace and his purpose for our lives.
I will commit myself to using the skills God has given me to build a better world.
Our Father, empower me to live the kind of life that builds a better world. Amen.

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”
Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”
Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
