Numbers 8:1-4

Num 8:1 Now Yahveh spoke to Moses, and this is what he said,
Num 8:2 “Speak to Aaron and say to him, When you set up the lamps, the seven lamps will give light in front of the lampstand.”
Num 8:3 And Aaron did so: he set up its lamps in front of the lampstand, as Yahveh commanded Moses.
Num 8:4 And this was the workmanship of the lampstand, hammered work of gold. From its base to its flowers, it was hammered work; according to the pattern that Yahveh had shown Moses, so he made the lampstand.

proper focus

I wonder why God gave additional instructions about setting up and lighting the lampstand at this time? Could it be that after all the careful taking down and setting up the furniture of the conference tent, that God wanted to make sure this crucial element does not get misplaced? We can have all the pieces of the worship experience, but not put the light on the right place.

LORD, as we prepare to worship you, show us what you want to focus on. We want to honor you with our worship.
