Exodus 25-27

Daily Devotional from Exodus 25--

Verses 26-27
And you shall make for it four rings of gold, and fasten the rings to the four corners at its four legs. Close to the frame the rings shall lie, as holders for the poles to carry the table.

See how detail-oriented God is! It's like IKEA took their cues from Him...'just print instructions and let them build it'. Consider the Table for Bread. ‘Put rings at the corners.’ Rings? For sliding poles through, so the solid gold table could be moved easily. We don't see much furniture constructed like this today though…we tend to put furniture in its place and leave it. Moving is a hassle!

But God designed the table this way because He knew the Israelites would be wandering in the desert for many years – a consequence they earned – but it was thoughtful to design things so they’d be easier to move.

Have you wondered why God created you a certain way? Why did He give me this personality, this funny nose, this crazy hair? He’s into details! Some parts of our design He knew would come in handy someday. As for our quirks that seem to have no possible purpose, well, He is an artist. He created what pleased Him. He considered your frame in the womb and thought, ‘It is good.’
