The phrase that stood out for me (from these 2 verses) was this one:
"a covenant of life and well being"
It was the Lord who gave Levi this amazing covenant and God's deepest hope was that this would bring LIFE and WELL-BEING to Levi.
As we seek to revere the Christ-child this Advent, let us remember that God's covenant of Love has always sought to bring the best to us. God is indeed good.
Living in Grace
