The Levites labored for the Lord nearly night and day. They were in charge of the tabernacle and its service. To be a Levite was not an easy labor job. It was often a hard task considering they sacrificed animals daily. It was not for the weak stomached.
In the book of Joshua, Joshua is dividing the land for the Israelites inheritance. One tribe would get one place, another would get another piece of choice land. What did the Levites inherit? Nothing physical!
Here these great men, served the Lord daily and administered the rites of worship, yet they inherited nothing…well nothing but GOD!
Joshua 13:33 records, “But to the tribe of Levi Moses had given no inheritance; the LORD God of Israel was their inheritance, as He had said to them.”
The Levites had no inheritance but God Himself! I believe God is enough for them and for us! So often, we think in terms of a temporal blessing or inheritance. I would rather have God Himself than a piece of land! God is more than enough.
So, what do you long for?
Are you in a pursuit for more?
Chasing dreams and buying possessions
Even climbing the ladder of your profession
What is it you live for?
Is it this constant pursuit of more?
Not more of God, but more things
Filling our treasures for that is our dream
Why do we do this? Why do we pursue?
The wrong things daily, that won’t satisfy you.
A little of this, a little of that
So people will envy the place you are at
Is it stuff we are after or the position we can have?
Is it prestige we long for and the recognition we can grab?
In light of eternity, does this really matter?
When life is over, can we take it to the hereafter?
Is it the temporal things that we truly love?
Or would you say, “that God Himself is enough?”
