Over All the Treasuries

Overseeing a treasury is no small job, carrying with it great responsibility and great temptation. Remember the Ethiopian Eunuch in Acts 8? The Bible pictures him as a responsible man. Remember Judas? He had charge of the treasury of Jesus and His disciples. You know what Judas did.
The Bible tells us that during the reign of David a certain Levite and his brethren had charge of the treasuries, “This Shelomith and his brethren were over all the treasuries of the dedicated things which King David…had dedicated. Some of the spoils won in battles they dedicated to maintain the house of the LORD…every dedicated thing, was under the hand of Shelomith and his brethren” (1 Chronicles 26:26-28).
Did you think that the Levites only dealt with sacrifices? The Levites had huge responsibilities in everything pertaining to the temple. Yet, they had ability to keep those responsibilities, because God gave them the ability, even as He has given you abilities.
