Surrounded With Skillful People/Workers

In life, hard work is required. Work was not the result of the fall of man, it just became harder after the fall. David was not ignorant of this important requirement.

David surrounded his son Solomon with skillful men to work with him.

A parent who shields his children from learning and working hard is crippling their future. Though the Lord be with us, we must rise and be doing, and, if we do this, we have reason to believe He is and will be with us. Work out your salvation the Bible says, and God will work in you.
