Chapel Yesterday Morning

In Exodus 25, God begins to give the instructions to Moses for building the furnishings of the temple. In plundering Egypt, God had given the people gold and other riches which they could then offer up for the building of the tabernacle. He told them how to make the tent, the altars, and the priestly garments. He gave them the animals for the sacrifices. He gave them priests. He gave them the liturgical rites they were to use.

God gave them what they needed. And what they needed was not merely manna to eat, shoes to wear, and water to drink -- all of which He provided. But He provided, too, the things necessary for their worship, that they might receive His gifts and His forgiveness.

He does the same for us who are on our pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
