Www d dewberry baptist clarks bridgedcomdo it right in the first time. I remember the first time I heard thosewords Mydad had given US Boys, a chore of Weeding the Garden. Now for those who don't know whatweeding he is weeding is the chore of Getting All theWeeds from around the plants in t a garden so go and weet it get thoseweeds out. We only had one hoe and my...

...older brother typically would use thewhole, which means my younger brother and I would pull the weeds. But my atsaid boys. I won't Yall to weed the garden tomorrow. Won't you do it right,get done ca e, Sir. We came home from school and immediately we went out there startingweeding, but you know it was in the springtime and it wasn't full summer yet n. The Sunwould go down a little bit sooner than we wanted and we always wanted to play, and so we knew that the sooner wefinished wheeding the more time we had to play, and so we went through and we weeted nd.We did an okay Jobasn't, the best job. It was okay, we got the big weeds andwe thought you know those little weeves.

We can get those another week. My Dad got home. That evening. We werein full plamod by the time that go, he gets Oy pulls in the driveway andfirst thing he does. He gets out of his car. Ahe Sees Hersout Wan, but he walksdown to the garden these down there and walk around thegarden and we're noticing him at this point. They said Boy Square Wiggle in there and my dad says I won't try to look atthis half. I won't say what he said, but half donejob. He said I won't Yaw to look at this half done job and he said tomorrow, you're going to come in from school andyou're going to do it all in an addition to waiting the garden. I won't try to do this as well. Youwant us to put some dirt in the driveaway and he said Boyis. The reason I'm doingthis...

...is because when you do something youneed to do it right the first time. I never forgot that lesson. Sometimes Ithink I'm becoming my dad. I say that to my boys today. You need to do itright, the first time, but it's ill true. Do it right the first time? It's a lesson by the way that thechildren of Israel modeled when it came to building the dowmmacwe're finishingup the book of Exodus today were reading exiters. Thirty eight Thregh,forty, I'm going to read from exus chapter thirty, nine versus thirty twothrough forty three. So all the work on the Tavernacke, theten AF meeting was completed. The Israel did everything just as the Lordcommanded noses. Then they brought the towver after theMoses, the tent and all it's furnishing...

...its class frames, crossbars pots andbases the covering of the Ramskins dyng red, the covering of a nother durableleather in the shielding curtain. The ARC of the convenent law with its polesand the atonement cover the table with all its articles and the bread of thepreserts, the purigle lamp sand with its row of lamps and all itsaccessories and the olive oil for the line. The gold alter the annoiting, allthe fragrant, Incense N, the curtain for the entrance to the ten, the brodsaltar, with its brane grating, its poles and allmats UGENSELS, the basionwith its Stan, the curtains of the courtyard, with its post and bases andthe curtain for the entrance to the courtyard, the rods ten pegs for thecourtyard. All the furnishings of the TAVERNACT, the ten of meeting...

...and the woven garments warned forministering in the sanctuary, both the sacred garments for aarin the priestand the garments for its sins. When Servinas pries, the Israelites had doneall the work, just as the Lord had commanded Moses, Moses unpected. The work and saw thatthey had done it just as the Lord had commanded so Moses Bless Hem. I have always felt Christians have an opportunity toevidence to the world our love for God. By the way we do things, I've always felt Christians ought to doeverything to the best of their ability and untoBor, and that's exactly what happened herein the Old Testament.

They worked and presented it and it wasdone right the first time because it was done as unto the wor.Whatever task we undertake, we are to do as into the word, according toPaul's command in Clasas, three, twenty three, our labors are to be offeringsunto our God and in the text today. It is emphasized of numerous occasionsthat the children of Israel did the work, just as the Lord commanded, it theyl made God's word to a tea, and, aswe read the text, we must admit it's not one of the most inspiringtexts that we read, I'm not trying to demograte it at all.Obviously it's the word of God and there's power it contained within itand it's exciting just by it being worgod. However, imust admit...

...it doesn't touch my soul as Daniel andthe walins dead or Shet right me, Shakin Abennigil. Itdoesn't move me like the Cross of Jesus Christ or Stephen Beig martyred for hisfaith. Nevertheless, its gods were- and it'sjust as powerful as any other part on a closer reading. In fact, werealize that the faithful obedience of the children of Israel is what's highlihed obedience, which is followed even inthe smallest of details and thereit is the lesson I would submit to you had Daniel not been faithful in thesmallest of details, we would never read about Daniel and the lions...

...that at Shatranishekanbindigna beenobedience in the smallest of areas. We wouldn't have read about theirobedience in the large areas. You see it was this in a very real way.This text today, which provides the path to those otherpowerful victors, its obedience in the small that provides victory in the GraneMMI've, never really struggled with Owaing God in the big areas. I'm not tempted today to go out and dodrugs, I'm just not those are not temptations, I'm nottempted to forsake my vows, I'm not tempted to lie. I've made a commitmentto God. I Don' not I'm not tempted to cheat when I go to school nd and by the way, I'm in school right nowwork on M B, a I'm not ever even...

...tempted age. Those big areas, I'm nottempted to steal those big areas, I'm not even temptedto follow him. However, I am tited overeat. At times I am tempted to waste time on vainthings. I am tempted to cut my quiet times,sure in fact I'm tempted to do the minimumon things that I don't feel or important. That's my temptation. We all have ourown some of Youar tempted in big areas, some and small, but here's the key. Wewill ultimately fall in the big areas if we're not faithful in the small and so right now, I'm not currentlytempted in the big areas. If I'm not faithful in the small one day, I will I've got to be faithful in the small...

...infact. The temptations we have arevery real, and so the lesson for today is that you- and I give our best to Godin the small areas in whatever we undertake. May We do soas unto the war, and this will be a constant matter forthe rest of our lives, but this text can provide a constant reminder for therest of our lives, something and small as pulling weeds deserves. My Bet deserves your bess as unto or May I seek to do that today in the small area, I'm just out pulling weeds. May I do itas unto Lore...

Well, tomorrow, we'll be in laviticus.I'm so excited about that book. I'll be sharing more about that as we starttomorrow, but I want to clos us an Rarto father.
