2 Chronicles 35:10-13   Thought/Prayer:  Service in Love.  Topics:  2 at end.

“So the service was prepared, and the priests stood in their place, and the Levites by their courses, according to the king’s commandment. And they killed the passover, and the priests sprinkled the blood which they received of their hand, and the Levites flayed them. And they removed the burnt-offerings, that they might give them according to the divisions of the fathers houses of the children of the people, to offer unto Jehovah, as it is written in the book of Moses. And so did they with the oxen. And they roasted the passover with fire according to the ordinance: and the holy offerings boiled they in pots, and in caldrons, and in pans, and carried them quickly to all the children of the people. “ (ASV)  Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com

Good King Josiah kept a wonderful Passover to honor God, in Jerusalem.  There were a huge number of Passover offerings, free-will offerings and more.  This surely must have honored God greatly.

There is a little piece of loving insight in the piece of scripture above.  Yes, this Passover celebration was big and beautiful.  A tremendous amount of preparation must have been put into it.  It was joyous.  Josiah, as king, was delighting in honoring God.

But if we look closely, there was another type of delighting going on:  The delight the comes from loving service.

Can you see this?  The offerings were cooked, in many types of pots it seems, and then what?  “They,” speaking of the priests and the Levites, “carried them quickly to all the children of the people.”  Here the priests and the Levites are seen to be greatly in service to the people.  They were the spiritual leaders of the Israelites.  They took care of the sacrifices, and on this day they are in charge of boiling the offerings for consumption by the people.  Many people!

The sweet part is the manner in which their brethren were served.  Regarding the food items, the priests and Levites “carried them quickly.”  In their act of serving the people, they were kind enough to want the food to be hot for the eating.  So they went quickly to deliver to the people what they had prepared. 

One mark of a true leader is heartfelt service to those he or she leads.  Here we see it.  The priests and Levites must have been very tired from all of their duties as this very large event; and there may have been a rotation among them regarding duties.  But however it was, they made haste to deliver the meal to their fellow citizens.  It’s just nice to see it written here in scripture.  You think?

Lord, we thank You when You allow us a peek into the hearts of Your people through the narratives of the Bible.  To see the spiritual leaders’ attitude of service is pleasing.  Perhaps we can be viewed as “leaders” in some manner, as we take a stand for pro-LIFE causes.  But let us not forget, Lord, to humbly deliver our loving offerings of prayer and assistance, with hearts of service.  Can you see this?  The offerings were cooked, in many types of pots it seems, and then what?  “They,” speaking of the priests and the Levites, “carried them quickly to all the children of the people.”  Here the priests and the Levites are seen to be greatly in service to the people.  They were the spiritual leaders of the Israelites.  They took care of the sacrifices, and on this day they are in charge of boiling the offerings for consumption by the people.  Many people!
