The Merarites were appointed to take care of the frames of the tabernacle, its crossbars, posts, bases, all its equipment, and everything related to their use, Numbers 3:36
Every large company or organization has many different types of workers. These workers are the ones who do various jobs in order to make the organization run smoothly and correctly.
Only a few of the positions available are the glamorous looking leadership positions that many desire. Most of the positions are the ‘lower’ positions doing what appear to be menial or unimportant jobs. Though they may seem to be unimportant, all these positions are needed and are important.
God gave the sons of Merari, the son of Aaron, the job of caring for the frames and posts of the tabernacle and everything related to their use.
In the work for the tabernacle, caring for some posts does not appear to be something exciting to do. It is not the lead position of being the high priest or taking care of the sacrifices. Doing this type of work would be the like a person cleaning the toilets or vacuuming the carpet in a church today. These appear to be small jobs of no value.
There have been people in the church who leave the church because they are not allowed to do the big jobs. Pride gets in the way of their heart and does not allow them to do the small, necessary jobs.
Without small jobs being done, the big job cannot be accomplished successfully.
Believers are to do everything that they do as unto God. Every job, whether big or small, is to be focused on building God’s kingdom. In the eyes of God, every job that He hands a person to do is important for the building of His kingdom.
You may have a titled position in your church or you may not have one. Either way you have a job to do in order to assist in building God’s kingdom here on this earth.
Do not allow yourself to be resentful of the position you have or jealous of a position that you do not have. Allow God to work through you in whatever is available for you to accomplish. He will work within your skills and abilities to build His kingdom.
Together with others, you will build His church here on this earth.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that God will reveal to you the work He has for you to do; that you will work as unto God; and that you will see the value in the work you do in building God’s kingdom.
