Giving My Best
Numbers 4: 2-3 "Take a census of the descendants of Kohath from among the sons of Levi, by their families, by their Fathers households, from thirty years and upward, even to fifty years old, all who enter the service to do the work in the tent of meeting."
It is easy for me to sometimes skim while reading and not always consider the meaning. In these verses God is instructing Moses and Aaron to count the descendants of Kohath who were allowed to do the work of the sanctuary. God specifically asked them to count the men who were between the ages of thirty and fifty. This caught my eye because my understanding is that this age period was considered to be the "prime" of a man's life if you combined both wisdom and physical strength. So really, God was requesting the best from the family Kohath. I immediately wondered if I am giving my best to Him (I am not referring to my age as the criteria). Do I give my "prime" time to Him or is it "courtesy" time?
Lord, help me to always give You my best.
