‘Make the tabernacle with ten curtains of finely twisted linen and blue, purple and scarlet yarn, with cherubim woven into them by a skilled worker.’ (Exodus 26:1)
We make a mistake when we believe that God doesn’t desire our best work. It’s interesting that God didn’t tell Moses to find any old person to make the tabernacle curtains. The instruction was specific: the work was to be done by a skilled worker. Beauty is of value to God, and excellence matters, too.
We have to be careful that we are always giving God our best. After all, He is deserving of it. Laziness doesn’t belong in the church (our place of corporate worship) or in our lives (our place of private worship). In all that we do, we must give God our best.
Are you giving God your best at church? Are you giving God your best in your life? If not, then perhaps it’s time to rearrange your priorities.
Father, help me to always give You my best. Keep me from being lazy in my relationship with You. Let me strive for excellence in all things and in doing so bring You the glory that You both desire and deserve.
