We went over quite a few feasts in today’s reading. One of the notes in my Bible said the following:

“Feasts played a major role in Israel’s culture. Israel’s feasts were different from those of any other nation because, being ordained by God, they were times of celebrating Him, not times of moral depravity. God wanted to set aside days for the people to come together for rest, refreshment, and remembering with thanksgiving all he had done for them.”

Never thought about the difference in the feasts of the Bible and those that happened in other cultures. This is a good example of something we don’t do enough, celebrate the blessing we have from God. Let us all take some time to celebrate all our many blessings today.
