Chapter Summary

Peace Offerings

It is especially interesting to note which parts of animal offerings were burned. First, the blood was drained and sprinkled around the altar. Then the fat and intestines were burned. Only the rest of the meat was given to the priests, or in some cases, some was for the priests and some for the family who brought the offering. Note our study verse. Do those of us who eat meat still live by these principles? Our health would be better if we did.

Day 106

Dear God, You gave us the plants of the earth for food, but You did allow certain meat, too. But You gave principles for its use. Help me and my family to be faithful in our healthful eating.
