Use your uniqueness for the Lord.

Saul of Tarsus was a tentmaker by trade and thus quite familiar with manufacturing and, before the days of sales reps and middlemen, sales and haggling in the marketplace, as well as responding to the needs of customers. He brought those skills to the table when he was chosen by the Lord to be an Apostle. He became a frontman for the Gospel, "selling" the message of Jesus to people in need. He responded to the needs of the communities he visited with the salve of Gods love. Jesus challenges us to be shrewd in the ways of God, clever in using our uniqueness, skills and talents to serve Him and proclaim the name of Christ to those who do not understand.
