Temple Dedication 21 Aug 2020

1Kings 8:65 And then (with the temple dedication) Solomon and with him all Israel from the Pass of Hamath to the Torrent of Egypt -- a great assembly -- celebrated the feast before Yahweh our God for seven days.

Useless, Purposeless and Generous

A celebration of 7-14 days for the people of God. I love it. But it feels so inefficient! I hardly can believe it.

Did it Really Happen?

Honestly speaking, I doubt.

But I can see easily a beautiful image of the redemption from slavery. God loves his children and wants them to celebrate, spent useless time with pleasure. The people get to know one-another. Friendships grow. Purposeless love.
