Reading along with us in Exodus? Here’s today’s reading:

Exodus 35 (ESV)

Moses assembled all the congregation of the people of Israel and said to them, “These are the things that the Lord has commanded you to do. 2 Six days work shall be done, but on the seventh day you shall have a Sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on it shall be put to death. 3 You shall kindle no fire in all your dwelling places on the Sabbath day.”

  1. I have been negligent about being in the word personally over the past week. It is unfortunate the way we can let life get in the way, even if good things, and distract us form the real priority. And I am not an exception to that. As far as chapter 35 here, I am always struck how often God talks about the Sabbath. It’s like God saying “Yes, work hard, but please rest and remember Me and others”. I also like the pattern of giving that is given here. God’s work/His tabernacle needs stuff, so God asks His people to give willing and they give. No gimmicks and no pressure, just appreciation and recognition to Who is asking.

    I also like the picture of God supernaturally equipping people to do the work. Another example of the incarnational way our God works!
