Day 147

1 Chronicles & Psalms

There are some beautiful verses in these chapters, so don’t miss them as you read through the lists. As I searched for public domain images to complement the chapters, I found the following insight by Dr. Shibu Cherian on 1 Chronicles 25-27, which explains so much about David’s planning that we’ve been reading about yesterday and today. I love that David so carefully chose the people to carry on his ministry and kingdom.

King David made elaborate preparations prior to his death to gather the materials and funding to build the temple of God. Along with that, he also planned elaborately and selected people to serve the temple and his kingdom in various capacities according to their inherent gifts and talent for the common good of all the people of Israel. Each person was handpicked and given specific responsibilities according to his/her abilities so that the operations would go smoothly.1
