Necessary Or Additional?

to bring to the tabernacle, and a repeated phrase kept jumping out at me –

…in addition to the regular burnt offering…

There was one daily offering that was necessary every day. Then there were other offerings that were additional.

Here’s the principle: The additional should never take the place of the necessary.

There are some things that are necessary for me every day. My devotional time … my personal prayer life … time with my wife … time with my kids … and a few other necessaries.

There are some things that are additional for me. A church project … a community event … a committee or club … you get the idea.

What is necessary for you? What are the additional things you have added?

Always remember: The additional should never take the place of the necessary. If your additional is crowding out your necessary, it’s time to make some changes.
