DON’T BE SO ANXIOUS TO TOUCH

Leviticus 11:8

 

‘You shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you.

 

 

LESSON

 

Any dead animal was “unclean,” perhaps because death was not the normal condition of an animal. Sheep, goats, and oxen were the standard sacrificial animals the peoples that are on the face of the earth’ to be ‘a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.

 

As a general rule, “clean” fish are those that inhabit fresh-flowing upper-level waters, while unclean fish and water creatures are bottom-dwellers – where natural waste accumulates.

But since the fat and skins of some of the forbidden creatures were useful, for medicinal and other good purposes, and were used by good men, it is not probable that God would have them cast away. If we hearken diligently to the Lord our God then blessed will be our body, flocks, lands etc. That was the promise of God to Jews in the old covenant. God has given us certain spiritual laws and if we obey them we will be blessed. But if we do not listen or obey Gods words then we will be cursed.

 

Memory Verse: Isaiah 52:11

 

Touch seems to be as essential as sunlight.
