Day 41

Day 41 reading – Exodus Chapters 33-35

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 NIV

Every person who God had given skill to carried out the work.

I like that thought.

Especially when you consider that everyone has some type of talent or skill.

That means as the church was being built there was a place for everyone to participate (by design) from the beginning.

In the wilderness, God was working to include everyone!

I have a friend who has taken this a step a further. He works with churches to help reach out to those artistic type people that are often left out of today’s more traditional churches.

Considering the church was designed to be inclusive, who might you reach out to that might have been left behind?

Author:

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
