Numbers 3:16

Numbers 3 takes place at the time Moses talks to God on the mountain. The Levites one of the twelve tribes of Israel were summoned by God to become priests because Aaron’s two oldest sons made an unacceptable sacrifice to God and we’re struck dead. That left only Aaron’s two youngest sons as priests. God instructed Moses to count all the firstborn males and they would become priests. Moses counted them by family and clans.

This leads us to the 16th verse:

 So Moses counted them, as he was commanded by the word of the Lord.

Numbers 3:16

If you dig into chapter 3, you will find the names and their responsibilities.

Weekend Wisdom: Who To Fear

Since fear kept popping up in quotes this month, I decided to continue with “fear” being the theme for Weekend Wisdom this month.

Do not be wise in your own eyes,

Fear the Lord and shun evil,

This will bring health to your body

and nourishment to your bones.

Proverbs 3:7-8 (NIV)

Fearing the Lord means respect and reverence for God. These qualities are sorely lacking in society today, even among Christians.

A Celebration for Dr. King

Today is a belated birthday celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I even hired a couple cardinals to sing for him.

There are so many excellent quotes on BrainyQuote.com that I had a hard time choosing which one to post, so I choose several. May at least one speak to your heart today.

The quality, not the longevity, of one’s life is what is important.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

If a man has not discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

A man dies when he refuses to stand up for that which is right. A man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice. A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
