1 Chronicles 23* David declares Solomon his successor. (1-23) The office of theLevites. (24-32)1-23 David, having given charge concerning the building of thetemple, settles the method of the temple service, and orders theofficers of it. When those of the same family were employedtogether, it would engage them to love and assist one another. 24-32 Now the people of Israel were so many, there should bemore employed in the temple service, that every Israelite whobrought an offering might find a Levite ready to help him. Whenmore work is to be done, it is pity but there should be moreworkmen. A new heart, a spiritual mind, which delights greatlyin God's commandments, and can find a refreshing feast in hisordinances, forms the great distinction between the trueChristian and all other men in the world. To the spiritual manevery service will yield satisfaction. He will be ever aboundingin the work of the Lord; being never so happy as when employedfor such a good Master, in so pleasant a service. He will notregard whether he is called to take the lead, or to keep thecharge of others who are placed over him. May we seek and servethe Lord uprightly, and leave all the rest to his disposal, byfaith in his word.
