So when I turned the page from Exodus to Leviticus today, I asked God to especially open my eyes to what He wanted me to see and to share with you.
Given the name of my blog, "My Daily Nibble," a chapter on Grain Offerings certainly is appropriate inspiration.
Verses 12-13 caught my attention. In them, God gave three instructions about seasonings:
- Don't add yeast or honey to grain offerings which will be burned. Don't offer them as a "pleasing fragrance."
- Do add salt to every grain offering.
- Honey and yeast are acceptable offerings as first fruits.
You could say God gave the recipe for which seasonings to use for success. He didn't disapprove or dislike honey and yeast. He only set up regulations for how and when they enjoyed. That sounds like a few other things--like sex and money. Good, pleasing gifts from God--when enjoyed at the right place and time.
Different seasons for different seasonings.
Different gifts for different people too. I might be "honey" (people call me "nice" and my writing "sweet"). You might be "salt." The fact God is using you all over the place today doesn't mean I don't have a place of service in His kingdom. My role is unique, and so is yours.
Ask God for advice about the right seasonings for your life and ministry.
