Joshua 13:14 Only unto the tribe of Levi he gave none inheritance; the sacrifices of the LORD God of Israel made by fire are their inheritance, as he said unto them.
God gave the Levites no inheritance of their own. That is they were given no land. They were given the sacrifices. God was their inheritance. The problem would be that they must depend on God’s people to faithfully sacrifice and honor God.
In the future many times Israel would choose to worship other gods. They would discontinue their sacrifices leaving the tribe of Levi without. God’s provision for the tribe of Levi depended on the obedience of God’s people.
The truth is that all of our blessings depend on obedience. The work of God and serving God determines what He will do in our lives. Please do not think that your actions do not have consequences. He loves you no matter what but that doesn’t mean that sin has no consequence.
