Today’s reading: Leviticus 6:5-6
We did it to God
In Leviticus 6:5-6, we read:
“… Or all that about which he has sworn falsely. He shall restore its full value, add one-fifth more to it, and give it to whomever it belongs, on the day of his trespass offering.
6 And he shall bring his trespass offering to the LORD, a ram without blemish from the flock, with your valuation, as a trespass offering, to the priest.”
This confirms that whatever crime or wrong we do to our fellow, we also commit sin against God. The offender does not simply make restitution to the victim but also needs to bring a trespass offering to Yahweh.
On the other hand, we also read in Matthew 25:40:
40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
If the wrong we do to our fellow is counted as a sin to God, the good we do to our fellow is counted as righteousness to God.
As we can see, there’s a balance, fairness, and justice in Yahweh. This is something we must always remember. Each of us is made in the image of God and we are future kings and priests in God’s kingdom.
We need to treat each other in godly love knowing that the way we treat each other is also the way we treat God.
