Two Turtle Doves and Loaf of Bread--Hold The Yeast
Surely that stuff isn't so important today, it's not like we round up the first born of our flock every Sunday morning before heading off to our place of worship, right??? Riiiiight, but let's get back to this mitzvot thing. The whole point of the mitzvot is to commit to something that if done in the right spirit can prove transformational to the um--mitzvee. And let me tell you, I could use transformational--ESPECIALLY. IN. THE. AREA. OF. DISCIPLINE. Okay, you don't have to agree SO vigorously--I can see you out there nodding your heads-- "oh bless her heart she sure could..."
So that's it-- no skipping, skimming or dodging of the less than riveting passages. This will be my sacrifice, the sweet fragrance I offer up to Him. I will joyfully apply myself to this task, even when it's not exciting. And while I'm at it, I'll claim this promise, "And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns." Philipians 1:6 NLT
