Exodus: Chapter 39

The weight and the beauty of the priests' garments certainly helped impress upon him the vital role God had given.  The jewels representing each of the tribes would certainly have reminded the priest of why he was called to serve.  And I was again reminded that the pomegranate and the bells are intended as reminders of fruitful and melodious service.  I envy the daily reminder the clothing was to be.  I need to be reminded of the beauty and privilege of serving the One True God.  I need to reminded of the preciousness in God's eves of each person I serve.  The passage reminded me of Colossians 3 which exhorts us 'as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, to clothe ourselves with compassion, gentleness, kindness, humility and patience.  Those are our jeweled weights to wear...and they indeed are beautiful!  Might we all dress well!
