Bible in a Year, Day 42

Bible in a Year


Welcome to the Joyful Times Today chronological study of the Bible in a year, complete with inspirational graphics. We’re so glad you’re joining us!


Day 42

Exodus 36-38

Today there are more details on the making of the tabernacle and all of the other elements God wanted the Israelites to create in order to worship Him. As I’ve said before, it amazes me that God cares so much about the details . . .  but He does for a reason. When we built our home in 1999, every detail of the architecture’s plans were supposed to be carried out by the construction crew, but there were several mistakes. As a result, things went wrong and delayed the close of our home. I imagine God watched over the Israelites and they followed God’s plans with perfection, don’t you?
