Eph 3:10 (KJV) To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God
 
How resourceful or versatile are you on your job, in business, and in life generally? Do you possess dexterity?
 
If there is one attribute we should all stretch beyond our comfort zones to attain, especially in this jet-paced age, it’s versatility.

 
…The person who is versatile has more going for him than a guy who does just one thing
– Terence Newman

According to dictionary.com, versatile means
 
-competent in many things;
-able to turn easily from one subject or occupation to another;
-many-sided;
-adaptable to many uses or functions.
 
Related words include adaptable, all-round, handy, multipurpose, flexible, resourceful, dexterous, multifaceted, talented, ingenious, varied.
 
Versatility dictates that we are very fluid and well suited for more than one functions or roles on our jobs and in any team or group we work with.

… he who is loaded is always needed.

 
It dictates that we have a broad knowledge of and can communicate freely on a varied number of subjects.
 
This quality calls for greater exposure to information and knowledge, as well as greater awareness- socially, politically and in all our fields of endeavor. The key words are broader knowledge and greater exposure.

… forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Php 3:13-14 (KJV)
