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,

You can hear three voices (thoughts) in your head: God’s, Satanic, or your own (self). Can you tell the difference? How?

OT: God continues to show His people how to approach Him. Today’s reading: when we sin unintentionally there is a process to go through to restore relationship. For Israel it involved sacrifices, for us today it is prayer, repentance, and restoration.

NT: So far in Mark: the author, God the Father, demons, and teachers of the law have asserted the deity of Christ. Today - Jesus claims that He is Lord of the Sabbath. Yahweh is Lord of the Sabbath. Therefore Jesus is Yahweh. You may wish for Jesus to just say - ‘I am God’ , but if He is God does He have to say it the way YOU want?
