Things Prohibited of the Priesthood
Verses 1-9 – Why were the guidelines so strict that God gave the priest? God wanted His priest and people to serve only Him. Their duties were religious not political as Egypt’s were. God’s priests were to help the people worship Him in a pure way. They could not use their position to gain power because they were not allowed to own land or take money from anyone.
Verses 19-25 – “Without Blemish”-perfect. We serve a Holy God. Whether it is time, talents, or money, these verses convey that God wants our best, not left-over’s. He gave us His best when He gave us Christ. He was perfect in every way. We should do the same.
