Numbers 4 - Day 163 (link to reading plan)
Scripture: Numbers 4:17-20
Observation: The Lord delineates the duties of each tribe within the Levites. The Kohathites were required to care for the most sacred objects within the tabernacle.
Application: The Kohathites were like the specialty movers of their day. Even though they cared for the sacred items, their duties were specific and their lives depended on following God's instructions. They couldn't even "look" at the sacred objects for even a moment, or they would die.
We've come a long way since then. Take the time to appreciate the fact that we can approach the throne room of God without the supervision of Aaron or his sons.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, have mercy on me a sinner. Thank you for your blood that covers me and allows me to approach your Father.
