Scripture:   Exodus 26:30 NIV  Set up the tabernacle according to the plan shown you on the mountain.   (also 27:8; 25:40; Acts 7:44; and Hebrews 8:5)

Observation:   Moses went up the mountain to spend time with God.  Not only did he bring down the Ten Commandments, he brought back plans to build a portable tabernacle.  God not only told Moses; He showed Moses.   Surely there must have been times when the builders went to Moses with questions about the plans and Moses said, “Here is how I saw it on the mountain.”           

Application:    When I have questions about living out my Christian life, I can think back to how my dad did it, or how Pastor Shurance did it.  Their visual examples help me better understand the written words. 

Prayer:   Lord, thank you for coming to earth to show us how to live.  And thank you for the people you placed in my life to show me how live in my world.  Amen
