TOPIC – The Need To Restore A daily devotion for April 6th

Read the Scripture: Leviticus 6

If anyone sins and is unfaithful to the Lord by deceiving a neighbor about something entrusted to them or left in their care or about something stolen, or if they cheat their neighbor… when they sin in any of these ways and realize their guilt, they must return what they have stolen or taken by extortion… And as a penalty they must bring to the priest, that is, to the Lord, their guilt offering, a ram from the flock, one without defect and of the proper value. Lev 6:2, 4, 6

Here we will deal with the last of the five basic, fundamental human needs represented by the five offerings which God taught the Israelites from the tent of meeting. The guilt offering is the last of these five. This offering is the final one of this series of five because it deals with the relationship of man with man, with how to maintain a workable relationship with our neighbor. This is the offering which teaches us how to restore harmony to broken human relationships.

Father, how thoroughly you understand what can lurk in my life, hidden away, and keep me from living together comfortably with one another. And how wonderfully and wisely you have made provision for me in your Word so that I can live, love, and enjoy life with others without constant strain and tension.
