Mission Statement

In classical sacrifices, the people get the good bits, and the gods get the refuse, the bits that would get thrown out otherwise.

Not our God. Leviticus (particularly Leviticus 3) describes the sacrifices that our LORD demanded from His people of Israel. God gets the kidneys, the tail, and all the fat. He gets the prime steak, He gets the best.

Today we do not literally give sacrifices of animals. For us the ultimate sacrifice has been made through our Lord, Christ Jesus. But should always be our ambition to do the same thing - to offer God the best of what we have, to offer Him the fat, and not the smoke and bones.

Thought's From My Quiet Time

"...while the remaining nine were to stay in their own towns..." (From Nehemiah 11:1)

Cities cannot provide for themselves. Even in Biblical times, and more recent times when everyone had animals and fruit trees, the fact of the matter is that food is shipped in from the country to feed those in the city.

We tend to see only the people up front, and not those supporting from behind the scenes. Yet they are 9 out of the 10.

Am I willing to be one of the faceless, nameless nine, who is willing to sacrifice for and support those up front, in th elimelight - even if no one else (aside from God) credits me for it?

I pray so.
