The Levitical priests—indeed, the whole tribe of Levi—are to have no allotment or inheritance with Israel. They shall live on the food offerings presented to YHWH, for that is their inheritance.

Deuteronomy 18:1

By being born again, we become priests, Levites in the spiritual sense. This law is for us a prototype of all the verses of the New Testament which encourage us to put all our worries in the hands of Jesus, not to worry about tomorrow and, above all, not to look to the world for financial, health or any other help. We must first and foremost turn to Him.

They shall have no inheritance among their fellow Israelites; YHWH is their inheritance, as he promised them.

Deuteronomy 18:2

We can have material goods, tools, but we must not give them too much importance, not rely to them and not be under their domination. Because they will be eaten away by moth and rust. Our inheritance is in the Kingdom of Elohim. Let us therefore lay up a treasure for ourselves where nothing can harm it and which we can enjoy for eternity.

These treasures are, for example, all the brothers and sisters whom we lead to Christ and who will be there with us forever.

But for us, treasures are those spiritual gifts that sanctify us to earn the crown of life. This is why we must run, as Paul warned us, and not after earthly goods and day-to-day survival.

Let us therefore walk on water, with confidence, because if necessary, even the mountains will move, the seas will split in two, the houses will collapse, the arrows which are directed towards us will fall back on our enemies.
