Listen to this morning’s Scripture Song – Psalm 89:1
Read the “0217 Evening and Morning“ devotion for today, by the late Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
Numbers chapter 7 is a chapter filled with details, but a chapter that I in all honesty struggled to find what God would have me learn from.
Often, when reading certain books of the Old Testament, it is easy to skim past large portions of scripture because they seem to not be applicable to our lives as we live them now. I have been reading through the Bible this year, in chronological order, and am trying my best to puy attention to the details that God thought important enough to include in His Word.
That being said, why may this chapter be here for me to read? First, it makes me grateful that Jesus died on the cross so that we no longer have to participate in such detailed sacrifices in order to remain in God’s good graces. Jesus completed that for us on Calvary!
Also, God valued the princes’ offerings, so much so that He listed each piece in great detail.
That brings to mind the question, does God find my offering worthy of mention? Though not necessary for forgiveness of sins, are my offerings of self and service of any value to Him? Am I giving enough of: time, possession, me? May I take better note what God finds important enough to have etched into his everlasting Word.
