I’ll bet you never went camping in a tent like the one that God told Moses to build in the desert! This was to be the first holy place where God wanted to be adored and worshipped by God’s people as they went from Egypt to the Promised Land. They would be in this desert wandering for forty years. Now that’s a long time, so God thought it would be good for them to have a kind of portable “church” called a tabernacle where they could pray when they had rest stops on their journey.
Do you have a special place in your house where you and your family pray? Now don’t put up your tent–that’s for vacation! Why not get your family together and figure out a spot in your house? Set it up in a special way so that you will sense God’s presence when you go there. How about finding a special time to read God’s Word each day and to pray with your family.
Here’s an idea. This Bible passage is hard to picture. Read a few verses to get a feel of the reading, but then check out https://www.bibleplaces.com/tabernacle/for a full size model of this sacred tent.
