“10,000 hours of ‘deliberate practice’ are needed to become world-class in any field.” Malcom Gladwell

Bezalel was a slave. He spent his life working with metals, engraving, mounting gemstones and carving wood for the Egyptians. He put in thousands of hours but never got paid. God was preparing him to make the Tabernacle or Tent of Meeting, and all the utensils needed. He became an expert craftsman.

Exodus 31:5, “He is skilled in engraving and mounting gemstones and in carving wood. He is a master at every craft.” New Living Translation

Maybe you are not being paid a fair wage. Maybe you are not being paid at all! Maybe your company or boss is taking advantage of you.

Remember, you are in training. God has a specific job for you. He is making you a master at your craft. He is the One who will reward you.

Dear Father God,

We are grateful that nothing misses Your attention. You see everything we do and how people treat us. You have a plan and You are training us for a specific purpose. Help us to develop our talents and master them.

In Jesus Name,
