I Chronicles 25:1-31, 6:31-53, 26:1-32

It always amazes me how many people were involved in the caring of the temple, even before it was built in Jerusalem. Hundreds of people were assigned duties, from teachers and musicians to priests and guards. Young and old alike, teacher as well as student worked side by side to get the job done.

They didn’t throw out the old way of doing things. In fact, they were careful to obey what God had told Moses hundreds of years before. They didn’t go to a research firm to find out what non-Jews liked in a worship service. They went to Scripture to find out what God said, then they worked together to honor him.

I think that is a recipe for a healthy church no matter what century we’re talking about.
