Hebrews 3:4 For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.
The concept of the “self-made” person is similar. People make choices in their lives about what career to pursue, whether to attend college, and how much time to spend studying. But the basic materials—intellect, health, raw talent, family support, interest, and curiosity—are gifts from God. We cooperate with God in building our lives, but the materials are provided by God, the builder of all things.
