Words such as order, holiness, and sacred tasks come to mind as we move through the lists of names and the duties assigned to each of the priestly families, the Levites and the Kohathites.

There is beauty in the sacred task appointed to Eleazar, whose name means, “God is Helper.” He tends to the light and takes care that incense and anointing oil are in readiness. He is given the overall responsibility of the sanctuary.
Reflect upon your occupation in life as a call to bring the light of the Lord, the sweet aroma of God’s presence, and the oil of healing to those with whom you come in contact. You are the sanctuary of the Lord. How you do what you do, either draws others to the Lord or tends to push them away.
