Your personal responsibility

May 3  Numbers 7, 8      One thought stands out in Numbers 7:9. The sons of Kohath were to be given no aid in bearing the furniture of the sanctuary. The others were given covered wagons and oxen to pull them. This speaks to me of methods used in doing God's work. Some phases of it - the Gospel testimony, for example - can be carried on with various plans and in different manners, letting the work append on all sorts of things (so long as it was a covered wagon so that the holy things were not exposed to common view). But worship, the service of the sanctuary, can have no clever means of execution and transport - It must be upon the individual's shoulders, his personal responsibility.

God speaks in the silence of the heart. Listening is the beginning of prayer. Mother Teresa:
