The Best Of What You Have

The best of what you have…

We were sitting in the shade of a tree one morning talking about the Tabernacle described in the Old Testament. Did you know, Grandfather said, what we’ve known as the Tabernacle was called the ‘Mishkan’ or dwelling place? It was the very first house of God; the dwelling place of God’s glory; the place of Heaven’s dwelling. And yet it wasn’t built of heavenly materials. It was built of earthly things.

It was built from what the Hebrews gave. And they gave from what they had; their jewelry, their cloth, their adornments, whatever they had. They gave of their lives. It wasn’t the material that was holy – it was the fact that they gave it, they sacrificed it, and they surrendered it for God’s holy purposes. And the glory of God indwelt it.

So too, with your life. When you give to the purposes of God, your time, your money, your heart, your talents, your resources, that which you give becomes holy.

The Lord doesn’t ask you for much… just all. And we all have an all to give. Just give all of it, whatever you have, no matter what it is, the materials of your life – give them all to God and His purposes, and they will become holy, and the glory of God will come down.

The priests could not enter the temple of the Lord because the glory of the Lord filled it.2Chronicles 7:2

Give God your best, your most valuable time, the first fruits of your devotion, the best of your heart.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
