Today’s reading: Exodus 23:14-25:40
Giving to the Lord is part of our worship. It must be treated carefully so that our attitudes and practices honor God by our obedience to His Word. Old Testament worship was meticulously prescribed and, though we, living after the coming of Christ and the New Testament, are not held to the ceremonial laws of the Old Testament and do well to be sober-minded to worship God in spirit and truth (John 4:19-24).
