Thoughts on Numbers 15

There is the required sacrifice, then there is the free will offering. In this chapter I learned that there are additional requirements for each sacrifice or offering.
• Everything belongs to God.
• All sin, and we intentionally / unintentionally miss God’s standard.
• He provides, abundantly.
• The Giver, not the gift.
• An act, exercise of faith.
• True happiness in God, regardless of economic status, is a testimony to the nations.

God’s commands are dead serious. We take it so lightly. People have died on what we perceive to be lesser iniquities. Don’t mock God, and don’t be a temptation that causes His people to stumble. He is holy, and to have fellowship with his children he needs them (us) to be holy. Don’t get in the way.
