1 Chronicles 22-27 (The Daily Walk Bible).

Don’t worry, there’s a short one tomorrow and then a reflection day on the 21st!

So many names! It shouldn’t surprise us though. David/Solomon was the height of the Jewish monarchy. To be named here was to be a part of something special. Priests (descendants of Aaron) were responsible for sacrifices, Levites (descendants of Levi) carried out various duties in the temple, and the sons of Asaph, Heman, and Jeduthun were responsible for the music. You also have the heads of the various tribes, the generals, and those who were worked in the palace listed.

The extensive lists of those who were responsible for worship should remind us that corporate worship is a very serious undertaking. Paul alludes to this when he says “But all things should be done decently and in order” (1 Corinthians 14:40). And we should recognize the number of people that are involved in the local church to make sure that everything is ready to go on Sunday mornings and beyond: custodians, greeters, musicians, teachers, a/v workers, ministry teams, trustees, elders, etc, etc, etc! And God gives different gifts and talents to make all of this possible. Corporate worship is truly marvelous and intricate, and we should thank God for all those who make it possible!
