On being resourceful

During the gold-rush days in the mid-1800s, tentmaker Levi Strauss, observed that the prospectors needed strong, rugged clothes. So he conceived the idea to use rough tent material to make the Levi jeans. The idea worked, and in the course of time the Strauss company became the world’s largest apparel maker. God blesses rightly conceived and properly motivated ingenuity in His people, as He did the know-how of Saint Paul in behalf of the Gospel. He blesses their efforts to spread His Word by person-to-person testimonies and by the use of the mass media. He doesn’t want them to travel by oxcarts or in slow boats to China when they can use aircraft.

Think about it: Jesus had less response and found more resistance in the synagogue than in the workplace. So He took the gospel to the workplace. That's where the power of God was manifested.
