Offerings


Do you remember the Y2K scare? I believed something might happen, so I bought some silver. Nothing did happen back then.

We cashed in the silver this week. It has reached historic highs right now, so we did well. It had tripled in value during the time we owned it. Were sad to see it go. Happy to have had the resource when we needed it. Happy that the investment did well.

Today's reading has a lot to do with silver and gold. The leader of each of the 12 tribes of Israel is to present their offering to God. One each day. The offerings weren't random, because they were all the same.

12 -13 "On the first day, Nahshon son of Amminadab, of the tribe of Judah, brought his offering. His offering was:

a silver plate weighing three and a quarter pounds and a silver bowl weighing one and three-quarter pounds (according to the standard Sanctuary weights), each filled with fine flour mixed with oil as a Grain-Offering;

14 a gold vessel weighing four ounces, filled with incense"

So ladies, if you like silver and gold jewelry, take heart. That interest must come from God, because it seems that He likes it too!!
