Good Morning.

And you shall make fifty clasps of gold, and couple the curtains together with the clasps, so that it may be one tabernacle. (Exodus 26:6)

If you could be transported back in time and place and were able to explore the tabernacle in the wilderness, what is one of the first things you would want to see in the sanctuary? The ark of the covenant? The menorah, the brazen altar? Or how about the golden clasps that held the curtains together? I would imagine that the latter would never have crossed the minds of most unless it was pointed out to you — that is what I intend to do, today.

Remember just how important these clasps were in making it possible for the tabernacle to be “one” or echad. Because of these small, seemingly insignificant components of the sanctuary, everything could fit together allowing all the pieces to function in their purpose, which in turn served to invite the Presence of the Most High to dwell among them. Yet, set apart from the others these clasps would have seemed insignificant — they would not have been in the top ten things most would want to see were we permitted such a privilege as just mentioned. Here is the point: if God ordained it and designed it, no matter how small and no matter how trivial to our mind, there is significance in the insignificant.

There is no one in the Body of Messiah that is more important than the next. Each of us have a role to play and, thus, no one should consider themselves as insignificant. Most of us will never be known to the world but that matters not — if we are serving our purpose in this earth, we are known to Him. Moreover, those who might be more widely recognized are there only because there are many more unnamed and unrecognized who are supporting them. Again, there is no insignificant member in the body if they are functioning in their purpose. In fact, without the “clasps” in the body, it would not be possible for the curtains to be raised. Without the curtains in place, the Ark of the Covenant could not take its place. Without the Ark, there would be no Presence of God in the sanctuary.

So then, let us all consider the importance of our brothers and sisters and the role we all have to play in God’s end time purpose. There is significance in the insignificant and so do not downplay what your contribution can mean to the Kingdom of God. Your service and commitment to do your part just might the component that others have been waiting for so that they can fulfill their role in God’s plan. You, and others like you, may hold the key that shows so many more where they fit into the Kingdom.

Blessings and Shalom,
