golden gifts

The gifts of golden bowls were the most expensive, weighing 120 shekels (4 pounds) of pure gold. They were for holding the incense — a symbol of the prayers offered to God. One might surmise that the incense bowls were the most costly because prayer to God is a serious matter, not to be taken lightly. Indeed, the fact that we can come to God and enter his presence in prayer is a serious privilege.

LORD, we thank you for the privilege of entering your presence — to seek you and worship you, and share our lives with you.
