Day 52 – February 21, 2021
Scriptures: Leviticus 6-7, 2 Corinthians 9
God is careful in His plans to meet the needs of the Levites. The priests will be cared for in God’s economy. Something is set aside for them. There are rules to it, lots of rules! And as always, its pretty easy to miss a lot of what is being communicated. But what is clear throughout it is that God is caring for the priests of Israel, as they care for the people of God.
And this finds a lot of commonality with Paul’s words of encouragement for the Corinthian church. He celebrates their generosity, and he is grateful for it.
He reminds all of us that those who sow sparingly, reap sparingly. Those who sow much, have a great harvest.
As we think about giving and caring for others, let us sow much love and harvest richly!
Jordan Ickes, Minister of Etna Green Church of Christ.
