Prioritize What’s Important ~ Pekudei (Exodus 38:21-40:38)

Pekudei includes an accounting of all the materials that went into the making of the Mishkan (portable Tabernacle), Moses giving his approval to the quality and exactness of construction, and the building of the
Tabernacle, with all the various vessels located in their proper place.

Moshe teaches Betzalel the order of construction of the Mishkan starting with the Ark. Betzalel respectfully maintains that first one builds the home, then one makes the furnishings. Moshe replies that Betzalel is correct and the Almighty Himself had thus commanded Moshe, though Moshe conveyed instructions regarding the Ark first because of its primary importance. The Torah praises Betzalel for his intuitive understanding of the Almighty’s will with the verse:

“And Betzalel, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Yehudah did all that the Almighty commanded Moshe” (Exodus 38:22).

Rabbi Yeruchem Levovitz comments that we see from here the importance of doing things in their proper order. One always needs to clarify his priorities and to have the organizational skills to do things in their proper order.

This is an important tool for accomplishing anything in life. One needs to know what he must do and then he must have an order of priorities. We will never have enough time to do everything we would like to do. By being aware of the order of importance of what you have to do, you will ensure that you will effectively accomplish the most possible within the
limitations of the time allotted to you.

Each day make a list of the various tasks you need to complete. Then decide on a proper order in which to do them. If you don’t prioritize and don’t set aside the time you won’t accomplish what’s most important in life — spending time with your family, growing as a human being, helping others or even preparing for the Seder. No one on his death bed ever wished he spent more time at the office.
