. when my younger children were small, we studied the Laura Ingalls, Little House On The Prairie series. Laura’s mother, Ma, always scheduled her week by “the work of the day”. Every day had it’s own work. When she got up in the morning there was never the question: Hmmm. I wonder what I should do today?
. the Lord is like that. for the priesthood, every day has it’s own work. the priest knows what that “work of the day” is. When he gets up in the morning there is never the question: Hmmm. I wonder what the Lord wants me to do today?
. 1Chronicles 16:37. So he left there before the ark of the covenant of the Lord Asaph and his brethren, to minister before the ark continually, as every day’s work required.
. 2Chronicles 8:14. And he appointed according to the order of David his father, the courses of the priests to their service, and the Levites to their charges, to praise and minister before the priests, as the duty of every day required.
. Ezra 3:4. They kept also the feast of Tabernacles, as it is written, and offered the daily burnt offerings by number, according to the custom (the Amplified says ordinances), as the duty of every day required.
. the priesthood. an occupation. every day has it’s own work.
