Some wondering thoughts:

2398 Strongs’ Numbering System
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,

Good morning!
Lev 4:1-5:19
The unintentional sin-dealings
-first is given on if a high priest unintentionally sins-makes you kind of wonder-what are some of these unintentionals-but anyway that's between God and him- I like that God treats from the lowliest servant slave up to the most prominant-in same category-He loves all the same-and we are all his favorites-yet he doesn't show partiality.

Ch 5: Being a witness, unknowingly touch unclean, or touch something makes you unclean, saying foolishness, all of this reminds me of true repentance, come to the Father, lay it @ the Saviours feet, Jesus paid it all for us-the ransom and lamb was slain for forgiveness of sins.

Mark 2:13-3:6
the calling of disciples: in particular: Levi..was today. Then you have the scoffers-Pharisees sneering @ why Jesus eats with such scum. I love that Jesus put them in their place. He came for the sick -not the healthy-He called not those who "think" they are righteous, but those who KNOW they are sinners. Amen!!

Ps 36:1-12
I love v5: "your unfailing love, O Lord is as vast as the heavens-your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds." (before you mentioned or I read your commentary Mike, it brought to my rememberance Third Day too, Your Love O Lord,) Absolutely love that song!! thank you

Proverbs 10:1-2

Yes, wise words-I am thankful to the Lord of 2 precious children who bring joy to me and my husband Nathan. So blessed!!

have awesome Wednesday

Proverbs 10

I have a note in my Bible about the use of “Parallelism”. It’s a type of poetry that repeats a thought in a different way. (ie. Opposites). Verse 1: A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son grief to his mother. This just happened last week with my son. Between my wife and I we can relate to this. Of course you can swap father and mother in the verse and it has different scenarios. Then you can look at what brings grief and what brings joy. A son is never going to be wise or foolish all the time. Is this written for the son, father or mother? How does this apply to someone who doesn’t have a son or a wife, like me 40 years ago? I guess I was a son to my parents? Hahaha. What about the daughter?

Mark 2:13-3:6

Here we see Jesus being set up by the Pharisees. They were organized and the conspiracy was being formulated. In 3:5 we have Jesus responding in anger and distressed at their stubborn hearts. This is not a “soft” Jesus as he takes on these hardened hearts. What a role model!

How did this happen? What are they so afraid of? Is this a danger for me too? Am I listening and hearing Jesus? I am like that old wine skin not mixing well with the new wine. (2:22). Can I see the new challenges that Jesus is offering? In the next reading we hear about how he calls you by name.
