Numbers 10-11:23
1 Corinthians 14:10 says, in the King James Translation, “There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.” That is the first thing I thought about when I began reading about the “silver” trumpets. Its good that we hear the notes being sounded, but hearing them does us no good if we don’t know what they mean. Here Moses is instructed by God on what to sound for differing situations. If the call to break camp is sounded but no one understand the signal or there is differing interpretations then you have chaos and movement with no momentum.

The wisdom of the trumpet sounds and each sounds’ meaning is demonstrated in the way the Israelis break camp and how they Tabernacle is already set up by the time the last tribe breaks camp and gets to the place were the camp is set up.

There is a verse in Isaiah, 1:18, where God invites the prophet to dialogue with Him about the true condition of their sin, so I’m not so sure that the peoples’ complaining is about just complaining or that the people are complaining about God taking them out of Egypt which they have false memories of the good times and food they had. They, like us, complain about God’s provisions devaluing the gifts and blessings of God.

The greatest gift God has given us is our deliverance from sin and freedom from eternal death, yet we find ourselves walling in the sin we have been delivered from giving that sin greater value then the freedom from it. We fear death that walks hand-in-hand with sin, but as long as we romance sin death comes along. We, like the children of Israel, make poor value judgments.

Mark 14:1-21
A woman pours expensive perfume on Jesus, unbeknownst to her she is preparing the one she loves for his death that he will die for her sins. She has given to Jesus more value than the cost of the perfume and the jar she carries it in. Yet those at the table who dine with Him value the perfume and the jar more than they value the man they have followed for three and a half years. Value it’s all about what we value. Jesus said, 7 “You will always have the poor among you, and you can help them whenever you want to. But I will not be here with you much longer.”

What we do for Christ is the only thing that will last, words to a song but true words. Christ is more precious than silver; more costly than gold and more beautiful than diamonds, He is priceless.

Psalm 51:1-21
7 You will always have the poor among you, and you can help them whenever you want to. But I will not be here with you much longer.

Something so hard for me to remember that my sins against others is not really against them, it is against God because He created them in His image, the same image that he created me after.

Proverbs 10:31-32
I’m reminded of an old saying, “You can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear.” If you only get words of comfort, words of wisdom, words that build you up from the godly, then looking to the wicked for anything other than corruption is a waste of time. A false witness breathes out lies, all the time.

Grace and peace,
