Today's Scripture: "And you shall make two cherubim of gold; of hammered work you shall make them at the two ends of the mercy seat." Ex 25:18

5592. The work of our hands defines the worth of our time. JG


See it.


Live it.

Reading scripture is an adventure to me. I often wonder what was not written between the lines. For example, you know the ark craftsmen had to ask what a cherubim looked like, the size and shape of the wings and the like. It's not like they had a photograph or a sculpture to copy, and you wonder if sketches existed from people's rare encounter with them. It wouldn't surprise me if the inspiration of II Tim 3:16 caused them to render something they couldn't imagine on their own. They probably stepped back after the work was done and knew they played a small part in a much bigger work.

Don't you just love walking through a craft show? The work of artisans usually hangs from a tent support and can be purchased, but watching them work is far more interesting to me. You don't spend much time watching something if it doesn't interest you, but some things will make you go back to look again. When you're done, you can't help but notice the variety of ways a person can use their free time. You know the exhibitors do this for enjoyment more than making money. Personally, I can't leave an event like that and not question if I am using my "free" time profitably.

Pray it.

Remind me, Lord, that I have no time that does not belong to You.
