from my notebook

My head is full of thoughts, and I have to write them down.

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.
