Post Scriptum (Inheritance Part II)

Here is another way the Old Testament Scriptures describe the Levites' inheritance which, I read yesterday, consisted simply of "the Offerings made by fire unto the Lord"... You might think they had nothing but ashes to show for. Dear reader, as Dear Abby would say, oh, but read on:

"But to the tribe of Levi the Lord God gave no inheritance; the Lord God of Israel is their inheritance, just as He said." 
Joshua 13:33

The consummately human Apostle Peter brings it to us in the New Testament. I thank God for His choice of vessels to tell us this: if the man who denied Jesus three times, who cut off a man's ear and rebuked the Lord Himself says it, came to believe it after all of that, then, as the old KJV would say, verily, verily, it is for all of us:

"but you are ... a royal priesthood..." 2Peter 2:9

God lead us and help us to walk with You...
