Paul went to Corinth. There he met a Jew named Aquila with his wife Priscilla. He stayed with them and worked, because he practiced the same trade; they were tentmakers. Tent makers were the Holiday Inn of the ancient world. When you were traveling and needed a place to stay you would get a tent which would become your residence for the duration. Corinth was an ideal place for a tent maker. It was a port city so there was constant traffic of sailors and tradesmen and merchants, all in transit and needing tents to stay in. In addition, the Isthmian Games were held in Corinth in non-Olympic years so athletes and spectators would also need tents during the games. Paul was able to ply his trade and still have plenty of time for his missionary work. What a vivid reminder that God can use whatever talent we have or whatever we are doing as the occasion for spreading the good news of Jesus.
