Leviticus 11-12, Matthew 23
I realized today that verse 12:8 is a foreshadowing to Mary and Joseph sacrificing two turtledoves following the birth of Jesus. A reminder that while they had very little, they were given the greatest gift.
“First clean the inside and then the outside will also be clean.” Too often we try to fix our outward appearance/actions without looking inside and realizing that what people can’t see is what actually makes us beautiful children of God
We must act in accordance with God’s will for us. To say we believe but only do it for recognition, makes us hypocrites of all we say we believe in. We are called to be humble servants, not saviors.
“And the priest shall make atonement for her, and she shall be clean.” -ellie
Praise God for such mercy that extends compassion even to Jerusalem as she continuously hated God’s messengers.
Oh lord, clean my heart. We look out at outside and compare ourselves to others. Wash me inside and make me new
