Today's QT further describes details of how things were inside the temple of the LORD. Seems like lots of wonderful new stuff made of bronze and gold. Solomon also brings in the old silver and gold furnishings his father David dedicated to the Lord and puts them in the treasuries of the temple of the LORD. All of this seems to indicate importance of the old as well as the new. The foundations that have been laid that enable the new. It makes me think about all the old stuff I take for granted. There are so many analogies that can be made here. Actually, everything that exists today is based on something older. Literally, everything. And all of it originates from the LORD. There is nothing new. Even new ideas, and based on old ideas.
Maybe I'm getting old. I'll be turning 31 in two weeks. I don't feel like I'm 30 years young, but I feel more like 26 or 27, maybe 28. I take so much things for granted. There are countless things that I take for granted. I think maybe the less time you have, the less you take things for granted. A friend of mine died few months back. My father almost died twice in the past year. There is no time to not appreciate every moment of it allowed by God.
