Bible Study & Devotional Day 178
Written by: Torrie Slaughter
Guiding Scripture: 2 Kings 12:11 “After they added it all up, they used it to repair the temple. They gave it to the men who had been put in charge of the work. Those men used it to pay the workers. They paid the builders and those who worked with wood.”
Is technology considered building? That was the question at a recent church meeting. While the different teams discussed what they did and what was required, the leader determined that those behind the screens were an integral part of growing the church.
As we read in 2 Kings 12 today, we see the relevance builders have now. King Solomon’s Temple was in disrepair, and King Joash(Jehoash) implemented a repair fund. However, apathy among the priests caused complacent attitudes. They collected money but did not begin the restoration process.
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. Ecclesiastes 1:9
I want to encourage those behind the screens and tell you that all churches do not operate in the same manner. Each congregation is governed differently, and while one may not consider your role significant, another will. There isn’t a simple answer or an easy solution but, if you desire to work for the Lord and give beyond yourself, there is an opportunity.
Prayer: Gracious Lord, please increase our awareness of those who need help building for your Kingdom. We know Your Gospel will reach the ends of the earth, and we have the technology to partner with You. May Your will be done. Thank You Heavenly Father for motivating us to serve You and place value in Your people. Amen
