Leviticus 22:17-23:44

Twice in today’s reading God opens up His ordinances and the blessings that come along with following His commands, to those who are not his people, "Give Aaron and his sons and all the Israelites these instructions, which apply to those who are Israelites by birth as well as to the foreigners living among you.” (22:18) In the 22nd verse of chapter 23 foreigners are included with the poor as benefactors of the grain deliberately left in the field. God has always allowed for those who were not His people to benefit from the “crumbs” from those who were and are His people as we read Saturday in the Gospel reading (Mark 7:28) What a mighty God we serve!!

What I really like about today’s reading is that it shows how our God is a God who loves parties. He want’s His people to not only reverence and obey Him He wants them to have a good time in doing it. There are lots of “feasts” and sacred assemblies, food and more food. God wants us to celebrate Him and who we are in Him. So Christian, please don’t walk around with a long face, shout Hallelujah from time to time because we serve a God that enjoys our enjoyment of all the things He has done for us.

Grace and peace,

Thank you for the encouragement to keep going , as it takes me a good hour to put aside in the morning , if I leave the reading until evening ,I probably would get behind , I always feel so encouraged by this blog and my day would not be the same if I did not start of with this total time in gods word . Thank you and God Bless all who put the one year bible together .

What has stood out to me in the readings of Leviticus is that God wants our best not second best. I am convicted in that I try to figure out how I am going to have time to read God's word and time to go to church- when instead of trying how to fit God into my life and schedule. This thought and process is totally wrong. It should be how am I going to fit my life into my God. Leviticus shows me that life of God's people was fit into their God and only and always the best was given to Him. I pray that I can have the same passion and love for God, and give him my first bests.

It's awesome to see the wisdom and care of God through the law. While the law could never save humans, it shows such involvement, care and shepherding by God to His people. I'm reminded how much we need direction from God, while we are not bound by law and we don't earn anything in relationship to God, He still give us His counsel because we are "like sheep" and so prone to wander. We too are called to remember and to specific actions that help us worship, obey and witness to Christ...for His glory and our benefit. What an awesome God we serve!
