In Levitiucus chapter 1, God gives instructions on how to perform burnt offerings. In Matthew 13, Jesus tells several parables and then explains them to his disciples. We are reading today from the English Standard Version.
May God bless the reading of His Word.
So now that the tabernacle and its contents are built, God tells Moses and the people how He wants the sacrifices performed. Again, he is very specific about every aspect. Did you notice that God is as pleased with the offering of a dove as he is with a bull? Any idea on that?
And I really love Jesus’ explanations of his parables, because I have seen each one in action many times since becoming a believer myself. Have you? And how true is it that a prophet (or one who speaks for God) is not recognized in his own home town? Have you seen that happen? I certainly have. I have known many men who faithfully served the Lord with good results for the Kingdom, but had little respect from the people who knew them before God got hold of them. It comes with the territory.
It’s Friday. Make this day one where God will be pleased with you.
I’ll talk to you tomorrow. May God bless you richly. I’m Steve Webb.
