Seeking excellence in labor as a ministry

Exodus 31 makes a simple but poignant point about God’s role in imbuing his people with the desire to serve him in many different ways. Bezaleel was a man who was filled in God’s extraordinary spirit and wisdom but it wasn’t for prophecy or the creation of miracles but rather it was to cut stone, mold metals and forge a physical housing for God’s presence.

Sometimes when we think of how we can serve God we forget that our excellence in our own career also speaks about His glory manifested in us. Yes,  I believe we are all called to be witnesses of his truth but consider this; while you are trying to motivate your fellow coworkers to go to your next Sunday service or bible study remember that your work ethic holds just as much of the manifestation of God’s power and wisdom.
Ephesians. 5:15-16

15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.
