Numbers 3:5 - 8 The Lord said to Moses, “Bring the tribe of Levi and present them to Aaron the priest to assist him. They are to perform duties for him and for the whole community at the Tent of Meeting by doing the work of the tabernacle. They are to take care of all the furnishings of the Tent of Meeting, fulfilling the obligations of the Israelites by doing the work of the tabernacle."
To take care of the tabernacle was their work. To offer worship was the work of Aaron and his sons. Anyone else who tried to approach the tabernacle was to be put to death (Numbers 3:10,
38). So I guess it is not so odd that when I sit down to pray I think of it as my work. I ask, What are going to do today, Jesus? And I think of that as working together. We are supposed to be
co-workers, co-laborers in the vineyard, but I hadn’t thought so much about being co-laborers at prayer time. However, it is true that not everything is accomplished by physical work; much is also accomplished by spiritual work.
So, Jesus, what are we going to do today?
