I have with me today drawing fromKelton. I don't know if you can see it, but just a drawing that he had made to me just a reminder. He made this problywhen he was three for of daddy breaching Idon't, keep all ofthe things that my children draw for me. I don't keep everything that they'veever drawn, but some things that they...

...make, especially for me some thingsthat they make and say Daddy. This is you this you preaching. This is mythoughts of you. I keep those now quite frenkly I could sell, is and and probably wouldn't bring a dollar and yet is priceless to me today. I want to talk about true or Tru. We like to look at art and say: Oh,that's, that's beautiful! That's alazy TAT's incredible, but you know whatI've found that art ought to be judged by what a person can and what a person does little calse when he was three or fortyyears old. He certainly couldn't draw even as goodas he does today,...

...but at that age that was isbest andhe took time to draw it and he took time to put daddy on thereand he took time to let daddy know what this was and it washis best and that's why, even though it wouldn't bring a dollar, it's pricess to me a great lesson we see in the book ofExedus were making our way through the book. O exiis were in exischapterthirty, five Thouh thirty seven. Today I want to read from chapter thirty fiveversus one through TN, then Moses assembled all thecongregation of the sons of Israel and he said to them. These are the thingsthat the Lord has commanded you to do for six days, work may be done, but onthe second, you shall have a holy day of Seti of complete rest to the Lord.Who Ever does any work on it. Shall be...

...put to Deay you shoall, not kindle afire in any of your dwellings. On the Sabbath Day, mosas spoke to all the congegation ofthe son's visal thing. This is the thing which the Lord has commandedsaying take from among you, a contribution to the Lord, whoever is ofa willing heart lethim bring it as the Lordscontribution, go silver, Broze, blue purple, scared up material, fine, Lin,goat ere, Ramskins, dined red bortbut skins, ACACIA, wood, oil for Ligtingand spices for the anording Oll, and for the Bravan incience and onic stones,and shedding stones for the EPI and for the breathpedes. Let every skilful manamong you com...

...and made what the Lord has commanded. How has God gifted you? What are your gifts, the God as given how you use his gifts to buildsomething great with your life, is pleasing to the only one thatmatters the artisans ear in exous chapterthirty, five use the giftedness God endown them with to work in concert with God in poweringthem even more to build something great for dim. This taternacle, which they built withall of its furnishing, was truly a genious work of art. They made something incrediblybeautiful too, and four there gon...

...later Solomon would employ similarartisans, whose natural giftedness would be empowered by God to be OntheTemple, those beautiful structures, the templeand the toternacle were testimonies and in a sense offerings to God. Yet this artword is hate. We alsoshould be doing with a temple of God. Our live to become the dwelling of Godthrough the work of Jesus scripes and as such the lives we build through ourtalents, empowered by God, should be beautiful, works of art for our Fov. You were created by God and when youand I were created, he created us with...

...certain talents and Abilliy. He didn't give us the talence ofsomeone else a lot of times, we'll look at someone else and say you know I wish I had their talents. Iwish I could do what they did as a Paser Mosen Times I dagh. I wish Ihad that voice. I wish I had that ability. You too. We look at people who areexcellent at woodworking and we say I wish I could do that God created within each of us talentsand the talents he gave us are different. Then the talenty gave others and fordifferent purposes and here's what we see it exis theseindividuals that got created with talents in the wound when they gave those talents to God todo something great, for God, got...

...empowered those talents even more to make what they were making evengreater. Thus as they built that temple, theTarna, a beautiful work of art for God, God blist expanded it Sultan with you and I, as we build God's Temple, our lives should be works of art, for God should be testimonies of God. You knowmy life, it's not on the front page of anyChristian magazine, the things that Gods doing in me andthrough me they don't get a thousand ten thousandlights on placebut. The world may never know it. In fact,...

...what God's doing in my life in the artthat I'm living for him may not be Muchworth much to the world, they may look at t and say yeah. That'sthat's not! But if I'm giving my best to God, if I'm working to for him, if I'msetting my sides on him to glorify him and honor him, Thay not look like much to the world but is pricewass to the only one thematers, just as my sons are, is priceless to me. Even so, my life is a work of art to go like you try to do my best and at times...

I admit an what I create and do isn'tquite as beautiful as what others do, but it doesn't matter it's my best and it's beautiful to the only one thatmatters. It's a priceless work of art to the true judge of art, as we with a pure heart devoteourselves to God. We make things beautiful for him and thus this work ofart and your work of art ar kept near to the heart of God. Our lives are a work of art and by theway, because they are such I want to touch. U Some things today. I want to make it more beautiful for myGod today, I want to make my life n, how he's using me and the talents she's.Given me,...
