“So Aaron and his sons did all the things that the Lord had commanded by the hand of Moses.”Leviticus 8:36
Does God really expect us to remember “all the things”…
As Commanded: Devotion Day 46
Almost every paragraph in Leviticus 8 ends with, “as the Lord had commanded Moses.” (And there are a lot of paragraphs!)
Reading this chapter, I couldn’t help but think of my parenting relationship with my own children. Every time I try to tell my teenage son several things to do, he always says, “Mom, just tell me one thing at a time…I can’t remember all of that!”
Then in Leviticus 8:36, it says, “So Aaron and his sons did all the things that the Lord had commanded by the hand of Moses.”
If my kids acknowledged they heard everything I said, much less remembered it AND acted on it, I would be in slight disbelief, but over the moon excited.
I’m thankful God isn’t an all or nothing judge. Too many of us, over the course of our lives, have believed the lie that if we make one mistake, we’re worthless and God can no longer love us.
However, I’m thankful for the truth of God’s word that reminds us that we are of value and that we are forgiven, not because of what we do or don’t do, but because of who we are. And that’s one command we should always remember.
