A different inheritance

Numbers Bible Background

02.27.2017 – Old Testament: Num 18.23–24

To read the Bible in a year, read Numbers 18–20 on February 27, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

The tribes of Israel received land in the Land of Canaan as an inheritance from the Lord, except for the tribe of Levi,

“But the Levites shall perform the work of the tabernacle of meeting, and they shall bear their iniquity; it shall be a statute forever, throughout your generations, that among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance. For the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer up as a heave offering to the LORD, I have given to the Levites as an inheritance; therefore I have said to them, ‘Among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance’” (Numbers 18.23–24). 

From what the biblical record shows, Levi accepted its different inheritance. They did not complain, nor did the other tribes would to be like Levi. Each received something from the Lord, and they accepted it.

Questions:

  • Have you accepted whatever the Lord has given you?
  • What are you doing with the Lord’s gift to you?
