"So Bezalel, Oholiab and every skilled person will do the work the Lord has commanded, because He gave them the wisdom and understanding to do all the skilled work needed..." v1

"A skilled craftsman sewed..." v35

We are all gifted. We are all graced. We are all to use those gifts and graces to enrich the Church and to minister to a lost world. What skills has God gifted you with? What graces has He built you up with and how can you use those to minister and serve?

For me I know He has gifted me with vision and administrational strengths. Also discernment. I find myself very cautious to exercise the first and last gifts because they are strong and bold and I continously fight in my life to not come across as overbearing or haughty which are character traits I saw in my mother and despised. I long to be a gentle, quiet, meek sort of person, but my gifts lay more in the lion than the lamb type personality. I need to learn to be a beautiful lioness and exercise my gifts with grace and strength instead of wishing I were a lamb.
