Some wondering thoughts:

SIN
2398 Strongs’ Numbering System
חטא
châṭâ'
BDB (Brown-Driver-Briggs’ Hebrew Definitions):
1) to sin, miss, miss the way, go wrong, incur guilt, forfeit, purify from uncleanness

Unintentional sin not planned sin, very interesting. These sacrifices and rituals were designed for the “stuff” that happens along the way. Since we are creatures that hate to admit we “missed the mark,” so to speak, a person would have to operate in “Truth” to realize that they have missed it BEFORE the consequences show up in ones’ life or the life of the community. All sin gives fruit to its own rewards. To have a life rooted in Truth one must deal truthfully with oneself and not be restrained by what family, community, country and “Church” thinks. Many jobs require inventories, even if it is only of supplies, material and human resource; but how often do we take an inventory of ourselves based on the standard and rule of God’s Laws? It is not about what others say, or even ourselves, it is about what God says. Anything else is sin.

I also understand that one can know the Truth, but that doesn’t mean one applies Truth rightly. Like soap, Truth, the Word, does you no good unless applied according to directions.

Grace and peace,

What is everyone giving up for the LENT season this year? I am giving up CHOCOLATE!!! Boo Hooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...loved the article Learning to love Leviticus !

Jesus did not intend to antagonize the scribes and Pharisees. He didn't begin each day by saying to Himself, "What can I do this morning to upset the religious leaders." If the King James version of the Bible were written in today's slang, everything that Jesus said and did seemed to "ticketh them off." I think the key verse today is 2:15: "Later, Levi invited Jesus and his disciples to his home as dinner guests, along with many tax collectors and other disreputable sinners. (There were many people of this kind among Jesus' followers)." The sinners are the ones that Jesus was seeking then and that is who he is seeking today. Hey, that's all of us. The religious leaders in Jesus time just thought they were perfect. NOT.

I've been lurking for a while. Love having friends to study with. What stood out to me today was the verse about God's love reaching to the heavens. Reminded me of the simple faith of my children. Whenever they look to the heavens they talk about our lost love ones being with God. Thus to them heaven = heaven. So,simple.

The lesson in Leviticus opened my eyes to unintentional sins and then later realized that we did wrong and hopefully ask for forgiveness. It is also good to know that Jesus came for the sick and the sinners and not for the righteous & healthy. Boy do I need to be reminded of this all the time. The Lent is a good time to remind ourselves of God's atonement of our sins.

I used to give up something for Lent and always come short of following it especially pertaining to chocolate. Instead this Lent, I promise to read the Bible and meditate everyday especially this Lent season.

Lily, great thing to do for Lent and all through the year.
