The Old Testament:
1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 “See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, 3 and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with ability and intelligence, with knowledge and all craftsmanship, 4 to devise artistic designs, to work in gold, silver, and bronze, 5 in cutting stones for setting, and in carving wood, to work in every craft. 6 And behold, I have appointed with him Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. And I have given to all able men ability, that they may make all that I have commanded you: Exodus 31:1-6 (ESV)

My view on what could be really happening here:
7 To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. 1 Corinthians 12:7 (ESV)
I like this view because it engages the whole person, every ability I have can and will be used by God for His glory when He chooses to do so.
