November 29– Exodus 36:31-38

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 tabernacle?

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.
