Day 37 reading – Exodus Chapters 22-24
Does your Bible have headings that proceed different sections?
Today I was struck by the headings in these chapters.
The Law is being given to Moses by God.
The Law goes beyond the ten commandments and is more detailed.
The headings for the laws being given just jumped out at me today:
You read the simple rules given under these grand canopy of headings and I respond with a “Duh?!”
Then I turn to the headlines of today and realize that we still can’t get it right.
We are still rebelling against the same rules given in the desert so long ago.
When will we wake up?
When will have our “Duh?!” moment and commit to living as God intended us to live?
Some make absolute sense.
Others need the context of the culture and the day.
But I ask, when we will protect people’s property rights, live with social responsibility, enforce laws of justice and mercy, and keep the sabbath?
BTW, the idea about annual festivals might also be a good one . . . Just sayin . . .
