VerseD: Numbers 18:26

“Moreover, you shall speak and say to the Levites, ‘When you take from the people of Israel the tithe that I have given you from them for your inheritance, then you shall present a contribution from it to the Lord, a tithe of the tithe.”
Numbers 18:26, ESV

God provides for ministers through His people, and the ministers still make offerings to God from that.
As Christians, we are all ministers called to support each other and help spread the Gospel.
(And when possible, have a paid, trained pastor.)

VerseD: Numbers 18:24

“For the tithe of the people of Israel, which they present as a contribution to the Lord, I have given to the Levites for an inheritance. Therefore I have said of them that they shall have no inheritance among the people of Israel.”
Numbers 18:24, ESV

Pastors, preachers, and teachers may not have much, but it is provided by God through His people.
It is a reminder that for all of us our true inheritance is in Christ.

VerseD: Numbers 18:20

And the Lord said to Aaron, “You shall have no inheritance in their land, neither shall you have any portion among them. I am your portion and your inheritance among the people of Israel.
Numbers 18:20, ESV

Aaron and his descendants (and the Levites) were the shadow of the Church: we have no earthly inheritance, for we are co-heirs with Christ. Christ is our inheritance. Yet, He gets all of Creation.

VerseD: Isaiah 54:17

“no weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.”
Isaiah 54:17, ESV

Truth is on our side, and what can anyone do to us other than end this life? Through Christ, the Truth of God, we have inherited eternal life.

VerseD: Psalm 27:4

One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.
Psalm 27:4, ESV

God’s Temple today is the Church: the living, biological, spiritual Body of Christ.
Seek the beauty of God amongst His People, Christians, who point this world to Christ and the eternal life He offers.

VerseD: Deuteronomy 30:16

If you obey the commandments of the Lord your God that I command you today, by loving the Lord your God, by walking in his ways, and by keeping his commandments and his statutes and his rules, then you shall live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land that you are entering to take possession of it.
Deuteronomy 30:16, ESV

God explained His commandments, statutes, and rules simply: Love God, love people, love the Church.
Our blessing? Eternal life through and with the Son!
