How Ugly is Sin
No where is the ugliness of sin better depicted than in Moses’ writings in Leviticus. The details of the animal sacrifices are downright disgusting. I am so glad we don’t have to do all that any more. The blood alone is enough for me; add to that the dis-emboweling that had to happen, and well…
What was the point to all of it? Why such gross, nasty-ness? Because sin is gross and nasty and disgusting to God. The result of sin is blood-shed and death. It is never pretty.
In reading Leviticus 3 this morning, I reflected on my own sin and grieved at how it makes God feel. May I always remember that.
