Upset with the corruption and extravagance plaguing his kingdom, Korea’s King Yeongjo (1694–1776) decided to change things. In a classic case of throwing out the baby with the bathwater, he banned the traditional art of gold-thread embroidery as excessively opulent. Soon, knowledge of that intricate process vanished into the past.

In 2011, Professor Sim Yeon-ok wanted to reclaim that long-lost tradition. Surmising that gold leaf had been glued onto mulberry paper and then hand-cut into slender strands, she was able to recreate the process, reviving an ancient art form.

In the book of Exodus, we learn of the extravagant measures employed to construct the tabernacle—including gold thread to make Aaron’s priestly garments. Skilled craftsmen “hammered out thin sheets of gold and cut strands to be worked into the blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen” (Exodus 39:3). What happened to all that exquisite craftsmanship? Did the garments simply wear out? Were they eventually carried off as plunder? Was it all in vain? Not at all! Every aspect of the effort was done because God had given specific instructions to do it.  

God has given each of us something to do as well. It may be a simple act of kindness—something to give back to Him as we serve each other. We need not concern ourselves with what will happen to our efforts in the end (1 Corinthians 15:58). Any task done for our Father becomes a thread extending into eternity.

From the blue purple and scarlet yarn. They made woven garments for ministering in the sanctuary he also made sacred garments for Aaron, as the Lord commanded Moses. They made that you thought of gold and of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and a finely twisted linen. They hammered out thin sheets of gold and cut strands to be worked into the blue purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen. The work of skilled hands. They made shoulder pieces for the e-file, which were attached to two of its corners, so it could be fastened it skillfully woven waistband was like it of one piece with the e-file and made with gold and with blue, purple and scarlet yarn and was finally twisted linen, as the Lord commanded Moses. They mounted the onyx stones in gold filigree settings and engrave them like a seal with the names of the sons of Israel. Then they fastened them on the shoulder pieces of the e-file as memorial stones for the sons of Israel, as the Lord commanded Moses.
