You have seen the many talent shows all over TV: America’s Got Talent, the late American Idol, The Voice. It seems every station is cashing in on what the seeing what above average talent the average person has and how well they can do it. What talents do you have? Are you too shy to use them? Check this out. I am going to give you a very straight forward approach for where talents and gifts come from. All these reasons are directly from the bible.
The LORD let Moses know of the talents He gave to certain people of the children of Israel so that the Tabernacle could be built. Exodus 35:30-35:
“And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See, the Lord hath called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship; And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work. And he hath put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work.”
Just as a reminder, where do your talents come from? James 1:17:
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change."
