November 23-29
Ezra 8: Trials, Tribulations, and Lists

Let me get this straight:
  • We've got priests.
  • We've got money.
  • We've even got permission from the Shah . . . 
And now you're telling me that we can't go because we don't have any Levites?

Get serious!

I mean, it's not like their job is all that important; basically, they just do stuff behind-the-scenes, i.e. cleaning and maintenance, with a little bit of music on the side.

Aside from the music, in other words, we're talking about the kind of grunt work that's easily overlooked -- the kind of grunt work that gets little recognition, and even less pay.

In short, nobody really notices the Levites when they're here.

So why is it such a big deal when they're not?
