Major Shift

Spread the love

2 Chronicles 31:14-19
14 Kore son of Imnah the Levite, the keeper of the East Gate, was over the freewill offerings to God to distribute the contribution to the Lord and the consecrated things. 15 Eden, Miniamin, Jeshua, Shemaiah, Amariah, and Shecaniah in the cities of the priests were to distribute it faithfully under his authority to their brothers by divisions, whether large or small. 16 In addition, they distributed it to males registered by genealogy three years old and above; to all who would enter the Lord’s temple for their daily duty, for their service in their responsibilities according to their divisions. 17 They distributed also to those recorded by genealogy of the priests by their ancestral families and the Levites twenty years old and above, by their responsibilities in their divisions; 18 to those registered by genealogy—with all their dependents, wives, sons, and daughters—of the whole assembly (for they had faithfully consecrated themselves as holy); 19 and to the descendants of Aaron, the priests, in the common fields of their cities, in each and every city. There were men who were registered by name to distribute a portion to every male among the priests and to every Levite recorded by genealogy.

This was not some small task, with only a few priests and their families to feed. This was thousands of people. This was a large undertaking.

I wonder what these Levites had done in the time before this? When they weren’t serving at the temple. Had they taken on jobs, trades, careers? This would have been a major shift.

Soft of like what I think needs to happen in the USA right now. A major shift needs to occur where a parent doesn’t work, stays home with the kids, is more concerned with parenting than making money.

This is just my opinion, but I believe it would be a great start to getting America back on track. Letting daycare, school, et al. raise our children has only succeeded in indoctrinating our children with crazy liberal ideas–completely against America’s founding principles.
