Today I read Numbers 3 where it lists the generations of the Levites and and the Lord explaining to Moses that He had taken the tribe of Levi for Himself. The Lord asked Moses and Aaron to number all the first born males from one month old and up in the host of Israel. He explained that because of the final plague in Egypt, these men had been consecrated for Him. But instead of taking those men, the Lord instead claimed the tribe of Levi for His own to officiate in the office of the priest for the Children of Israel.
I wonder what it would have been like to have been claimed by the Lord for His own? To be able to help those who needed it by officiating in the office of a priest. Honestly if we want to know, we have a temple in our times that can give us the same sense of satisfaction. The priests in the days of Moses were helping those who could not help themselves obtain salvation, we can do the same in our day by going to the temple and performing ordinances on their behalf for those who cannot do it for themselves. It gives us great satisfaction when we can help those who are suffering because of not having performed those sacred ordinances before passing on. Great satisfaction indeed! Until tomorrow.
