Why did God command that the Tabernacle be built from so many precious materials? Why couldn’t it be made from just anything? Because He desired that a dwelling place would be built for Him on earth from the love of the Israelites, but you can’t make a building out of love. So in the way that God commanded, many details, everywhere you could turn your eye, were an expression of obedience and love. In some ways, the offerings that we can bring are made in a place in our hearts and day to day lives that is built from the same materials.
