February 21

Today’s Reading: Leviticus 5, 6, 7

Highlights: Certain types of sins are considered followed by various types of sacrifices.  There were burnt offerings, grain offerings, sin offerings, trespass offerings, and peace offerings, each with its own particular method of making the sacrifice.  Again, lots of shedding of blood.

Regarding the sin offerings, it is interesting in chapter 5 that different offerings were prescribed for those who had less than others. The poor who could not afford a lamb could bring two turtle doves, etc. Everyone could be forgiven.  Is that what it is saying? If so, what quality of God does it seem to reflect?

Where, according to 7:37-38, were these laws given?

    These laws were given on Mt Sinai. Everyone could be forgive. This shows the love and mercy of God and I find it very touching that God gave the poor a way to be included in these important ceremonies.
