Tremendous detail went into building the temple as recorded in 2 Chronicles 3-4. The temple displayed art and its importance. Art is a way to say much without using words. It can focus our thoughts into something tangible and make the unseen become seen.
The building of the temple was a meaningful pursuit and our activities in God’s service should aim for what is important. The instruction from God enables us to go about the work of our day with confidence and a sense of significance.
This day with God, we know that Christ in us is the true Temple, more glorious than that of Solomon’s. Let us regard our time, care, and quality in our activities with the same magnitude that is displayed in the building of the temple. Let us put attention into the details as we pray that our spiritual house is in order.
