silver gifts

The silver gifts totalled twelve silver dishes and twelve silver basins and weighed 2,400 shekels (about 60 pounds). They were given in honor of the dedication of the altar in the tabernacle, and would be used to hold tribute offerings. the fine roasted grain, oil and incense were a tribute to the God who supplied the Israelites with all they needed.

LORD, we come to you this day with gratitude for all that you are, and all that you do to supply us with all that we need.
