Moses describes the wonderfully elaborate ordination of Aaron and his sons. I thought about the important place that priests played in
Devotion to God, that phrase stuck to me…
Like the priests, I can go through rituals that communicate devotion to God and these are important, but the confirming witness of my devotion to God is how I live day by day. Will I wake up my next morning and live faithfully throughout the hours of my day? Will I do that day after day, week after week, as long as I have life and breath?
Devotion to the Lord is proclaimed in rituals and confirmed through living.
On Sunday I proclaimed my devotion by attending worship. Now I am confirming my devotion through my attention to Scripture and my living throughout the remainder of today…
How about you?
Oh, God… give me strength to live for You. … Amen.
