November 29– Exodus 36:31-38
31 He made
bars of acacia wood, five for the frames of the one side of the tabernacle, 32 and
five bars for the frames of the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for
the frames of the tabernacle at the rear westward. 33 And he made the middle bar to run from end
to end halfway up the frames. 34 And
he overlaid the frames with gold, and made their rings of gold for holders for
the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.
35 He made
the veil of blue and purple and scarlet yarns and fine twined linen; with
cherubim skillfully worked into it he made it. 36 And
for it he made four pillars of acacia and overlaid them with gold. Their hooks
were of gold, and he cast for them four bases of silver. 37 He also made a screen for the entrance of
the tent, of blue and purple and scarlet yarns and fine twined linen,
embroidered with needlework, 38 and
its five pillars with their hooks. He overlaid their capitals, and their
fillets were of gold, but their five bases were of bronze.
We see lots of colors over and over in the making of the curtains
and the tabernacle as well as the ephod and the furniture.
Gold, purple, blue and scarlet.
Why do you think these colors were important to God in the making of the
Heavenly Father, I know these colors
represent You in some way. I know some
might represent royalty in the Bible and I’m sure there are specific things You
wanted to convey by using these colors.
Today I pray that I represent You well.
Not by the colors I wear, but by the joy I share, the love I show, the genuine
smile I give to strangers, and how You are a part of everything I do. Help me live up to this prayer and be the
person You need me to be.
In Jesus’ name.
