Reflections on Levitiicus 23-25

Our passage today continues to give laws that teach us some very important lessons

  • The Lord’s Name – One of the people blasphemed the name of God.  The penalty was death, and he was stoned.  Here is a reminder of how serious God is about how we treat his name.  While the punishment is part of the Mosaic Covenant, the command comes from the Third Commandment – a universal law.  How do you treat God’s name?  Do you use it as a curse?  Do you treat it poorly?
  • The Poor – Chapter 25 reveals God’s concern for the poor.  How does your heart match the heart of God?  How are you helping those in need?
