This Firestarter is from the original edition.
A cubit is the distance from the elbow of a man to the tip of his middle finger, about eighteen inches, or half a yard. This will help you to picture the dimensions of the tabernacle and the curtains described.
The Lord gave Moses precise details about the construction of the tabernacle. Every aspect had a symbolic quality. The tabernacle was the place that the presence of the Lord was to be especially found. While it may be difficult to picture all the details, each aspect is to be a reminder of the presence of God.
If you have any love in you at all, it is because God, who is Love, is present to you through the Holy Spirit.
God does not indwell in us as a reward for our loving; rather does God’s presence make it possible to love. Love is super-natural—it is beyond our nature and us. It is God’s way of loving granted to us.

that are read each year beginning with autumn.
