Ears, Thumbs, Toes
This morning I read Exodus 29 for my random chapter. As I first glanced at 46 verses concerning Aaron and his son's consecration about instructions on killing rams and spattering blood on the altar, I was kind of wondering was this really my Word for the day?
I did note several things in the chapter I didn't remember clicking with me before. There was a wave offering in verses 26 and 27. I thought, "Hmm, that is why some pastors ask you to hold your offering up in the air I guess."
I read about the anointing with oil of the head which I was familiar with, but then I saw something I hadn't noticed before.
Verse 20 Then shalt thou kill the ram, and take of his blood, and put it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and upon the tip of the right ear of his sons, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the great toe of their right foot, and sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.
Ears, thumbs, toes! Every part of us is holy unto the Lord. Be careful what you listen to. Be careful what you put your hands to. Be careful where you go.
(the last words of the chapter...)
I am the LORD their God.
