Our youngest son is a trend eater. Years ago when he was around eight years old he only wanted four slices of dry toast for breakfast. Without jam. Without butter. For six months. Needless to say, I worried about the quality of his nutritional intake. Until one morning when I removed four slices of bread to place in the toaster and noticed these words on the plastic bag, "Fortified with eight essential vitamins." Though dry to eat, he actually received more nutrition than I thought. After that I gave up my attempt to force eggs or oatmeal on him. Let him eat toast! Which he did for a few more months until he established a new trend.
Yes, reading Leviticus is like eating dry toast, but its intake is incalculable for a number of reasons:
So, how do you read the book of Leviticus? Asking questions as you read unpacks truths about God, man, sin, and redemption. As you read ask, "Who are You, LORD"? Who am I?" "Who are we as a people?" Note your discoveries either in the margin of your Bible or journal your thoughts as they occur. Ask God to disclose Himself to you through this book.
