My wife, Kathy, hired a contractor to do some work. The finished job was visibly less than pleasing. Many people may have paid the bill and chalked it up to a bad experience, but not Kathy.
When she hires someone to do a job, she expects the job to be done with excellence. She informed the contractor the job needs to be completed properly before he receives payment.
I used to pity her contractors until I realized she was helping them to learn excellence, and to better use their God given talents.
During the construction of the tabernacle God said in Exodus 31:6, "I have given skill to all the craftsmen to make everything I have commanded you."
If God has given each of us skills, shouldn't our end result look God directed?
