Today’s reading Exodus 27-28
Exodus 28:3 And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron’s garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office.
Sometimes we think that God given pastors and missionaries but the rest of us were not given special gifts. We think that God has these large special jobs that He prepares people for but I am not one of them.
Here they are about to make Aaron’s garments. God tells them to call for the wise hearted. That is a super think to say about anyone. Then he says to call those that He, God, has filled with the spirit of wisdom so that they can make the garments.
Did you know that there are people; gifted, spirit filled, given wisdom to do things like make the clothes used in worship. Obviously that was the case in this verse.
Would you stop now and be honest with yourself? Would you consider what it is that God has gifted you to do? What is your purpose here on this earth? Did He gift you for making the clothes, decorating His place of worship, constructing His place of worship, preaching, teaching, or any of a thousand other things.
I think the lesson we take home is that God has gifted and made wise hearted people to take care of everything that needs doing in the worship of Him!
