Insights on Today's Reading
Leviticus 5 - The first few verses speak of sins the people of Israel might commit that they may be tempted to ignore. God is meticulous in allowing no sin to go unjudged. God's mercy is shown in allowing poor people to choose a dove in place of a lamb or a meal offering in place of a dove. God expects His people to hold His property in high respect. Sins may be committed in ignorance but once the sinner is aware of them they must come to God for cleansing.
Leviticus 6 - Sinning against another person must be confessed and restitution must be made. God wanted the fire on the altar to always be lit. He placed special importance on the grain offering for it symbolized the sweet "aroma" of a person's godly character.
Leviticus 7 - God speaks of the importance of the guilt and fellowship offerings for they speak of a person's need to deal with the guilt of their sin before they can enjoy the sweetness of fellowship with their God. At the close of this chapter God summarizes the offerings. The subject matter will change in the next chapter.
