Doing my best to plow through Exodus, I was convinced that my attempt to read the Bible in 90 days was going to be a major FAIL. KnittyLawyer turned me on to YouVersion.com where I had the convenience of reading my selected portion and then posting to both Facebook and Twitter to let the world know how pious I am. Not too big a fan of eReaders, I stuck with one of the six versions of my printed Bible and read from there.
Leviticus ALMOST got me completely out of this challenge. Once again do I REALLY need to know how to slaughter a potential sacrifice or how to prepare said sacrifice.
Until I saw this:
Season all your grain offerings with salt. Do not leave the salt of the covenant of your God out of your grain offerings; add salt to all your offerings.
This verse brought to mind
Mat 5:13″You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.
O. Did Jesus mention salt as a reminder of the covenant God had with his chosen people OR was this the double meaning Old Testament writing that provides wisdom once mined?
A. How can I continue to be flavor in the lives of others? A woman I’m friendly with a church says that once I submit myself to God, the things that make me me will be used for spreading God’s word.
P. Lord, please release my stubbornness so that YOUR will is done, not mine. Amen.
I don’t think I could have gotten these nuggets of information if not for a new app I downloaded. The Bible.is is an app for iPhone, Android and Facebook. It provides either plain or a dramatic (which is really just loud music in the back) audio of the Bible. As I listened and followed along, I was able to make it through my reading.
