Today I present to you the 15th day of this challenge, the letter O.
Found in Exodus 31:1-11
Oholiab is someone that many who read the Bible would miss since he is included in one scripture, but he and Bezalel are appointed artists/craftsman who helped to build the Ark of the Covenant, the Holy tent and the tent’s furnishings. This was done through the time of Moses, where the Israelites were still going through the wilderness to reach the promise land. It is also mentioned that the Lord God appointed these men, not Moses.
There’s a little bias here, but as an artist myself, I have no shame picking Oholiab as the feature for O. I made him pleasing to the eye, nice eye candy. Yes, there are quite a few people in the Bible that has a name that starts with O, such as Obadiah the prophet, but all of the others are usually prophets or men of God. Here, Oholiab is an artist who is using his talents to glorify God. God does not call everybody Pastors or Prophetess to do His work. He needs the artists too! So if you are an artist and you are unsure of how to use your talents, seek God for wisdom and He’ll give it you without reproach or hesitation ( James 1:5). He gave it to me and it’s working . He will do the same for you. Just ask!
I hope you enjoyed reading this as much I enjoyed writing this! Make a comment so I know!
For the love of God and art!
