When did you last dust?
- I dust every week
- Dust? It’s a protective covering for fine furniture
- What’s the point? It will just get dusty again
I dusted the sanctuary Saturday. The men have been fixing the water damage, patching the plaster, spackling and painting. A gritty haze of white rested on every horizontal surface.
It made me wonder about young Samuel, dedicated before his birth to service in God’s sanctuary.
1 Samuel 2:18 (MSG)
Samuel, a boy dressed in a priestly linen tunic, served God.
Did dusting the sacred furniture fall to him? A child with a dust rag?
