Leviticus 17-18, Matthew 26:1-35
These readings are such a great way to start the day. Remembering what Jesus did for me and how he loves me changes the way I look at the day and interact with people
25and the land became unclean, so that I punished its iniquity, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. – wow strong description but I think they were even sacrificing children- realize why God wanted the Israelites to be holy from the nations they would go into in the Promised Land
Reading through Leviticus and Matthew has deepened my thankfulness for the freedom found in knowing and being known by Christ! ❤️
Leviticus 18:18- Didn’t Jacob do this with Leah and Rachel?
He did, but that was before this law and their issues with each other reveal all the reasons you shouldn’t do this. (Also, Jacob probably wouldn’t have married sisters if his father in law hadn’t tricked him by marrying Leah to him first)… even the protagonists in the Bible are all (except for Jesus) sinful human beings. Their stories aren’t necessarily told for us to emulate but to see how God uses them anyway
Yes! And Judah and his daughter in law!
And it made me think of Noah and his sons after the flood
trusting in God at all times is harder than it sounds -ellie
May our great hope and excitement be for the day we get to drink of the vine in fellowship and celebration with our Savior in the Kingdom of God.
Love the connections made here from Leviticus and Matthew! Life is given through blood.so thankful for my savior!!!
