Read Deuteronomy chapter 18

VERSE:

Deuteronomy 18:2–They shall have no inheritance among their fellow Israelites; the Lord is their inheritance, as he promised them.

TRUTH:

I wonder if the Levites ever felt that they were left out? After all, they had nothing tangible to show for their inheritance in the promised land. They received no land and no territory of their own. Their inheritance was to be the Lord, Himself. Would we rejoice in knowing that we would receive nothing more or less than the intimate knowledge of the Creator of the universe? That privilege is truly the most valuable thing that we could ever be given. We have that same opportunity to know the Creator. Will we be content with knowing God, or do we desire the tangible things?

RESPONSE:

Father, You are enough. Knowing You, being with You, all of that is enough for me. I will not be jealous of mere tangible pieces of Your creation. I desire You, the Creator.
