These priests handled business within the temple gates, secular concerns, serving of tables, administration etc. These roles are given special mention … so we appreciate that God is a God of order. He is not the God of confusion … clear roles are defined and properly separated. What is the value of separating the oversight of the devotional activities from the outward roles? There could be conflicts if roles are not properly separated …there would be distractions and lack of focus where roles are not properly defined appropriately.
Leaders also understand that much needs to be effectively delegated. Delegation is done only where clear guidelines and policies have been predefined to ensure there is clarity on what can be done and how to do it.
Moses was advised to do likewise (to appoint elders and assign roles/responsibilities) to spread the responsibilities of leadership … again this must be very carefully checked with God or it can be a subtle rebellion when supernatural strength of God has been made available.
Verses for further meditation

Suggestions for Prayer
Lord , help me with all people appointments that I may not err in my judgments. Amen
As Nehemiah’s wall was built, so will we see a reconstruction in all that may appear in distress and in waste. Nehemiah trusted and feared God, putting his faith in the Almighty whose strength is limitless to exceed all our expectations. Look out daily for Nehemiah’s Wall in 2015 and do invite friends to subscribe to the free email or social media posts.
I am praying someone with a burden to be used by God in building will receive a fresh vision and get the job done.
