Moran writes, "This may seem harsh from our human perspective, but this reveals something crucial about God’s character. There was only one way to do things and that is God’s way..."
Moran writes, "In these specific scriptures, God commands that the Land should have a sabbath rest. Why would God command a sabbath rest, not just for men, but also for the Land?"
Moran writes, "When we read these verses within the context of the chapters preceding them, we can understand that the foundation of these appointed times is God’s holiness."
Moran writes, "During this week, let’s reflect on the way we treat those who are different than us, those who we may consider as “foreigners” in the land, and then do something to show them that they are loved and cared for."
Moran writes, "God gave us the tools we need to be holy, just as He is holy! God delivered Israel from the land of Egypt (slavery) so that they would be a people set apart unto Him, for His glory."
Moran writes, "Where are you today? Is there anything in your life that is keeping you from being holy and set apart to the Lord? Are you offering a “foreign fire” to the Lord that could separate you from Him?"
Moran writes, "As we are on the theme of Passover, I thought about sharing some thoughts that may be a little different from the main reading."
Moran writes, "As I was reading the chapter again and again, reflecting upon it, and talking to some good friends about it, I saw some very interesting things that I’d like to share, as I feel it will bring us a deeper appreciation of God’s character."
Moran writes, "One of the many reasons that I love God’s Word is that the more one reads it, the more one understands the depth and richness of the LORD and His plan. In this week’s Scripture reading, we find a very interesting verse..."
Moran writes, "In our Scripture reading this week, we see a continuation of last week’s portion regarding what we are to do with the treasures that God has entrusted to us."
