“Aaron shall bring the bull for his own sin offering to make atonement for himself
and his household, and he is to slaughter the bull for his own sin offering.”
Before Aaron who was the high priest could atone for the Israelites he had to atone for
himself and his family first.
If he skipped that, the probability of dying in the tabernacle increased hundredfold.
He had to make sure he was okay before he could help the next person.
Why is this important?
It’s important because we need to have the same attitude if we want to help someone else.
I am not saying you must achieve perfection if you want to help someone else.
On the contrary, help where you can but make sure you are being helped.
Make sure you are being helped as you help others.
Don’t be arrogant and think you don’t need help.
You can’t do much if you are empty. Let YAH fill you continually. Let Him work on you continually.
Bring to Him your shortcomings and weaknesses daily. Cry out for His grace every chance you get.
It’s an honor for us that He chooses imperfect vessels to use. He could do everything by Himself
but He chooses to use you and me!
And that’s why you need to be first…….
