The Topic of Chuck Swindoll Daily Devotional 14th May 2022 is “A Touch Of Class, Part Two”.

Scripture:  Exodus 25:1–9

The Lord said to Moses, 2 “Tell the people of Israel to bring me their sacred offerings. Accept the contributions from all whose hearts are moved to offer them. 3 Here is a list of sacred offerings you may accept from them:

gold, silver, and bronze;

4 blue, purple, and scarlet thread;

fine linen and goat hair for cloth;

5 tanned ram skins and fine goatskin leather;

acacia wood;

6 olive oil for the lamps;

spices for the anointing oil and the fragrant incense;

7 onyx stones, and other gemstones to be set in the ephod and the priest’s chestpiece.

8 “Have the people of Israel build me a holy sanctuary so I can live among them. 9 You must build this Tabernacle and its furnishings exactly according to the pattern I will show you.

TODAY’S INSIGHT – 14TH MAY 2022.

Yesterday, I mentioned my disgust with the prevailing notion in many evangelical churches that elegance and class have no place in the landscape of spirituality. But even the ancient places of worship were stunningly beautiful. The tabernacle was a veritable golden tent that had within it fabulous works of art: sewing, tapestry, woodworking, and craftsmanship. Mouths must have dropped open. Check it out for yourself in Exodus 25–40.

And the temple that Solomon had built? One of the famed wonders of the world! First Kings 6 will blow your mind. Artistic frames for the windows. Beams and timbers—in fact, “the whole house”—overlaid with gold. Stones quarried to such a precise size they slipped into place on site. In fact, while the temple was being built, no sound of a hammer or ax or any other iron tool was heard in the place (1 Kings 6:7). Wall beams were dovetailed and “inserted” together, and each piece of furniture was a choice carving, a dazzling and unduplicated work of original art.

Why not? God’s reputation was at stake. God’s name was on display.

Centuries later, Paul spoke of having to learn how to abound . . . and there is no awkward embarrassment in his tone or any attempt to justify himself. Why should there be? It wasn’t until much later that the scene changed . . . that Christians picked up the fallacious idea that it’s admirable to look puritanical and non-creatively plain. After all, you don’t have to do so much explaining. And you can forget justifying yourself if you collected most of your stuff from either a garage sale or the bargain basement. It’s easier that way. You look more spiritual whether you are or not. Being outstanding arouses suspicion, being average doesn’t. As Elbert Hubbard once said, “To mediocrity, genius is unforgivable.”

Remember, now, I said yesterday that some wonderful exceptions exist . . . but they seem so rare. At times, I guess I get a little impatient about there being so few graceful and elegant swans to beautify the landscape and make Lake Evangelicalism more appealing. If there were, I think we’d find ourselves with more visitors and tourists than we’d know what to do with.
