a mans gift

Two persons that were naturally gifted in the bible were not that popular. Their names are Bezaleel and Aholiab. They were the genius that masterminded and orchestrated the covenant box, the tent, the lamp-stand of pure gold and the altar for burning incense (Exodus 31:1-11). They were extraordinarily endowed to reveal the creative nature of God.

Rev. Fr. J. J. Onolemhenmhen said, “Where is the creative nature of God in you? When God creates you, it means you should be creative.” In Daniel 1:17, God gave the four Hebrews children knowledge, skill in learning and wisdom. In addition, He also gave Daniel the gift for interpreting people’s dreams and visions. Right from the time of Noah, God has been giving the gift of creativity and invention to people. Noah invented and created the ark through the direction and inspiration from God.

Majority of people have written their names on stone, marble, bronze and in guinea book of record because they make use of the talent and gift that God deposited in them. Michelangelo showcase his artistic gift on the Sistine chapel. Five hundred years after his death, people are still talking about him. Leonardo da Vinci cannot be forgotten in haste for the portrait of the last supper of the twelve disciples and the portrait of Mona Lisa and other numerous works of art he created. Beethoven and Milton may have died but their albums are still touching the lives of people. When you mention the song All Hail the Power of Jesus Name, you remember Edward Perronet (1726-1792). Chinua Achebe may have passed away but his book Things Fall apart is still impacting the lives of people.

These people were able to make impact in their generation by discovering the gift of God in them. What is your gift? You must discover it before you can make a mark in your world. There is a relationship between your gifts and your purpose in life. Your talents and gifts are clue to your calling in life. The scripture says, “A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men” (Proverbs 18:16).
