“But all the Israelites went down to the Philistines, to sharpen every man his share, and his coulter, and his axe, and his mattock,” —I Samuel 13:20. Tools are a part of man’s heritage. He has been fashioning and using tools since “. . . The Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it,” —Genesis 2:15. This shows that God created man much differently from all the animals. Animals must forage around the woods or attack each other for food. God, however, gave man the ability to learn to plant his food and build his house. He also gave man the ability to design and use tools to accomplish this.
The ability to use tools is as valuable as any skill a man can have. While a man spends his time on earth, he will probably spend much of it providing and caring for his family. He will need to repair, mend, build, renovate, and maintain many of the physical necessities of life. God’s Word teaches us not to be wasteful. Caring for things the way that we ought often requires us to know how to use tools.
