Even the sockets and hooks were made of precious metal

By Don Ruhl

Former slaves constructed a magnificent and colorful tabernacle in the wilderness to worship God. Notice that silver was used for these parts,

And from the hundred talents of silver were cast the sockets of the sanctuary and the bases of the veil: one hundred sockets from the hundred talents, one talent for each socket. Then from the one thousand seven hundred and seventy-five shekels he made hooks for the pillars, overlaid their capitals, and made bands for them (Exodus 38.27–28).

This was a tent like none of us have ever seen. Did the children of Israel know that they would make something of this nature? They may have thought of making something exquisite for Pharaoh as slaves, but on their own in a wilderness? When you go with God and He goes with you, remarkable things happen.

  • Do you find excuses for not doing good works or do you just do them?
